Answering your question would require allot of detail. The only way you will be able to incorporate different file formats in your opengl programs is to reasearch it yourself.
you need to find out about the given files structure, write an procedure to read in the file and extract all the information you need, then render it using OpenGL.
go to http://www.wotsit.org for information on many different file formats.
