You will need to explain more, because info-insert-file-contents first
tests for the argument FILENAME, and if that does not exist, it tries
FILENAME with every extension in Info-suffix-list, which includes

In particular, this works for me on MS-Windows:

  M-: (info-insert-file-contents "d:/path/to/emacs/info/emacs") RET

and loads emacs.info.  Why doesn't it work for you?
