How to load/convert Oracle VM to VMware VM on ESXi 3.5 U4?

From Oracle.com eDelivery, I downloaded two VM templates that are made to load on Oracle's VM Server.  The file types found in the templates are: README*.txt,  *.img, and  *.cfg files.  How do I convert an Oracle VM template to a VMware VM which contains *.vmx, *.ovf, and *.vmdk files so I can load to ESXi 3.5, U4?

A sample of vm.cfg follows:

bootloader = '/usr/bin/pygrub'
disk = ['file:/OVS/seed_pool/FSCMDB/System.img,xvda,w',
        'file:/OVS/seed_pool/FSCMDB/oracle11g_x86_64_asm.img,xvdb,w',
        'file:/OVS/seed_pool/FSCMDB/FSCMDB.img,xvdc,w']
memory = '2048'
name = 'FSCMDB'
on_crash = 'restart'
on_reboot = 'restart'
vcpus = 2
vfb = ['type=vnc,vncunused=1,vnclisten=0.0.0.0']
vif = ['']

one of the way is to power up the VM using oraclevm and then using vmware converter to convert from the guest level.
