unfortnately not. the thread above is about general behaviour of APIC simulator. but in the case here i am asking more precisley how to download and upload config file of APIC-simulator as it seems that upload is not allowed due to read-only restriction when uploading the file (download works with ssh client that connects to apic)

If you can backup the config to an external server (FTP/SCP/SFTP) you should be able to restore to the Simulator.  Ensure the external routing is setup and the server is reachable. 
When creating the import task, you can leave the most of the default.  Here's a look at the sample import task I just used to successfully perform an import on a fresh 5.2 Simulator with some test config (Tenant and VMM domain created).  All were restored as expected after power cycling the Sim (and after reconfiguring the basic setup dialog).
