In meta model objects. Is it possible to fix the size of an imported image inside a block which I created using the toolbox. I do not want to change the size of the image even if the size of the box is increased or decreased. Is it possible to fix the image size?

Yes: put the imported image into a library symbol (Metamodel | Symbol Browser | New), and in your original Object type's symbol draw a Template down the left hand edge to pull that library symbol into your Object type's symbol. 

You can set the Template like this:
Subobjects | Subobject source: Self
Subsymbol | Subsymbol source: Library symbol named by: Selection ... (choose the new library symbol)
Layout | 
Interval: 9999 (so we never get as far as displaying a second copy of the library symbol)
Max width & height: (big enough for image)
Before point: 0, Left of path: 1
Allow X Scaling & Allow Y Scaling: false

Layout settings for icon template
