Just insert it using File > Insert Clip file.
Click on the Objects tab and you should see it there (Background_1) along with the Planet, and the original Background.
You can now delete the original Background.
To make the starfield more visible do things like:
Decrease Bluesky Density; Darken Bluesky horizon colour; Reduce Haze and Bluesky Expiry height; and Reduce the height of the Ceiling.

Then just play with the parameters of the various nodes of the clip file like the Space Dust Colour/Amount/Breakup. The amount of Medium and Small Star Clumps is adjusted with the Colour Offset parameter. And the Colour Adjust shader adjusts the brightness of the stars.

Hope this helps.

Many thanks, Freelancah and Schmeerlap. I'll use it for backgrounds on my next GN. Maybe I can do the same for you sometime.
