/assets/account/import is used in the context of performing account file uploads through the E10 UI. If you navigate to Contacts > Accounts > and click Upload in the top right corner (above search), you'll get the upload wizard:
The moment you click the cloud icon and select a file, two actions take place:
1) POST to /assets/account/import is made, where you are passing the name, import source and purpose of the import. The response includes the id of the new import object you created
2) Another POST to /assets/account/import/{id}/csv is made, which includes the data in your chosen file
Afterwards, you perform the mappings and go to step 4 of the wizard. When you click Finish, another two actions take place:
1) PUT /assets/account/import/{id} to update the import definition with your mappings from Step 3
2) POST to /assets/account/import/{id}/queue to send this import into the import/upload queue. At this point it becomes visible from Setup > Integration > Inbound > Reporting > Upload History
Note that this workflow is not meant for client use, but rather helps facilitate UI functionality for marketing users. You should be using Bulk API to add or update records, which also confers other advantages such as the ability to use syncActions. The only functionality not available in Bulk API which is available through this workflow is the ability to delete Accounts. For obvious reasons, its recommend that you do NOT automate the deletion of any records. Accounts especially are not subject to any band limits or rates, so its best to have Marketers remove them as needed.
Regarding the second part of your question, the /data/accounts endpoint will provide you with up to 1000 account records when using GET. A POST can also be made to create a new account record (company) within Eloqua. Otherwise, GET /data/account/{id} will retrieve the details of a particular record and PUT /data/account{id} will update a particular.
