If you already have some simple problems written, you should be able to
export them using the "Dump Course Docs to Construction Space" button in
the course editor.  Then you have the flexibility of Author Space
described by Ray below.

Just an observation.   I think that if you plan to create any more
than a very few problems, then you really want to get into an Author
role and create and publish your problems.  Then you can import them
into your course and do anything you want with them.
