Hope I have understood your question correctly:

1. Save your existing non-Pro Matrices and Presets if that is not already done.

2. Close your existing non-Pro instances (optional, but probably helpful to avoid clutter).

3. Open a new VI-Pro instance. 

4. Load a saved Matrix or Preset.

 If you haven't worked before with saving your own matrices and presets, I suggest you first experiment with it on a small scale before doing it systematically. Learn how to create subfolders. That way you can figure out a helpful folder organization and naming convention. Time, thought and planning invested in this step will pay dividends down the road.

For example, I'm a stickler for organizing my matrices and presets in score order, so I developed a score-order folder and instrument numbering system to prefix to the file names. That way they are automaticallyl sorted in score order. Main folders could be named 1 Winds, 2 Brass, 3 Percussion, 4 Keys-Mallets, 5 Strings. Then under 1 Winds you could use something like 1 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 3 Clarinets, 4 Bassoons. You could then name the actual Flute instrument presets as: 1 Piccolo, 2 Flute 1, 3 Flute 2, 4 Alto Flute, 5 Bass Flute, and so on. This is a simplified version of what I do. I also systematically add letters to the end of instruments to add a separate preset for mutes (1 Brass / 1 Trumpets / 2 C Trumpet-m) or ensembles (1 Winds / 3 Clarinets / 1 Clarinets-a3).

By the way, if you change your mind on how to name your newly saved files, you might also want to experiment (on a small scale first) with renaming them directly in the file browser of your computer. You can find the files in your VSL Custom Data folder. This will save you a TON of time over using the clunky interface in VI Pro.

In the tab MATRIX at right, down to the bottom is a save button. It might occur that a selected matrix' name is showing so be sure to name it w. something you'll recognize, albeit a dialog will pop up to confirm overwrite /or not/ the standing matrix.

1. Click the Matrix tab.

2. Set up a matrix the way you want by dragging patches into it.

3. Click the Save button in the lower right-hand corner.

4. Review the folder and names that come up, rename if you do not want to overwrite.

5. Once you have the folder and name the way you want it, click Save again.

Caution, be careful or you will overwrite existing matrices.

Follow the same process with Presets, but first click the Preset tab instead.

You might check out parts of the following video. Paul doesn't go into the details of saving and loading, but you see it in action very briefly.
