Is it possible to import an inline SVG directly into Sketch? I want to convert my inline SVG into a file without importing an external library or copy and paste the code inside an editor to save it as an SVG file.

There's no native way to do this in Sketch.
So plugins to the rescue!

SVG Insert in action.

The SVG-Insert Sketch plugin is exactly what you need to get the job done.

As of Sketch 55, you can just copy / paste SVG code into Sketch, no plugin needed.

Reference: https://www.sketch.com/updates/

Create new layers from SVG code: Paste SVG code straight into Sketch to create new layers anywhere on your Canvas.
