I am also new, so I have no idea what pyuic does, but assuming that you
have a generated file "pyuic_out", the easiest solution is something like

echo "import VME" | cat - pyuic_out > pyuic.py

(echo writes the single line at the input, cat concatenates the input and
the generated file to puic.py.)

More advanced approaches can be made by using other text-processing tools,
such as sed, awk, (obviously) Python, and (if you know what to do with it)

Unlike popular belief, the .doc format is not an open publically available format.
