I couldn't find anyway to import my private keys in the keychain. I have to give the full path of the key on my drive and keep it always saved there. It is somehow insecure to keep the key on my drive. how can i keep it in the keychain?

That is not currently supported. The intent of private key support is interoperability with the OpenSSH configuration files in ~/.ssh.
