I don't know if there is a straightforward way to do that, but
a workaround would be to have a first use of pdfpages to put
the pages in the desired orientation.
Eg say you want to insert orig.pdf whose p. 4 is landscape and
other pages portrait. Create orig-bis.pdf by running TeX on:
and include orig-bis.pdf in your final document
instead of orig.pdf.
