Hi,
you can use your custom model by importing namespace in your new model file

<imports>
<import uri="http://www.alfresco.org/model/dictionary/1.0"
prefix="d" />

<import uri="http://www.alfresco.org/model/bpm/1.0"
prefix="bpm" />

<import uri="http://www.someco.com/model/workflow/1.0"
prefix="scwf" />


</imports>

<!-- Introduction of new namespaces defined by this model
<namespaces>
<namespace uri="http://www.someco.com/model/workflow/1.0"
prefix="scwf" />
</namespaces> -->

and you can use it in your another model.

I think you are looking for the "Call Activity" documented nicely here: Activiti User Guide - Call Activity 
and here: Alfresco Activiti - Call Activity 

If I have missed something in my interpretation, please provide a specific use case to demonstrate your need.
