Check the settings in Sibelius. When you open a midi file, there are several choices to make that might make your life easier. Also, the playback bar has choices of "live tempo" and "live playback". You want these turned "off" (not pushed in.) There a choices for the smallest note you want, triplets, etc. Look at it for a minute as it's helpful.
When you finally have the midi converted to Sibelius, try this: Let's say you have 5 midi tracks (always export as "type 1). Go to "instruments" and pick the 5 instruments you want (in addition to the 5 you already have). Then, copy each track (click 3 times) and paste the 5 old tracks into the 5 new tracks. Delete the 5 old tracks.
Sibelius has a lot of filters that will help. Do this:
Go to Edit/filter/advanced filter. At the left, pick "text" in the top box then check "text" (and nothing else) below that. In the box that will pop up (middle, top) type this symbol ~ Then press ok (actually, press "select" Make sure "entire score" is checked at top). All the midi cc stuff will appear in blue. Press delete.
If you need help, feel free to pm. I'm a pro orchestrator, I do symphony charts.
