Here is an article about sweeping and importing private keys, I suggest start with reading this. On the Trezor website, you can find the supported coins.

Hi Anon,
For security reasons, I would *NOT* recommend sweeping a private key into your Trezor. The reason is that your key may be exposed during the process, if any malware exists on your device. I would recommend instead allowing your Trezor to generate its own, new private key (ensure that you make a secure backup of the seed words from which this key is derived!) and then sending your bitcoins to the associated Trezor address(es). The Trezor’s main purpose is to generate and store the privkey internally, in a way that ensures it never “leaks” to your PC, phone or any other device you plug the Trezor into. Doing things this way will cost you a mining fee but ensure peace of mind; it’s worth it!
