Lightroom: Import options for copy/conversion to DNG to the same location as the original file

Currently, if I want to convert an image from RAW to DNG upon import to LR, I need to use copy as DNG. This copies the file to a new location. I want to copy the DNG file to the same location as the original file. In DNG converter this is very easy to do; in LR the process is overly complicated. Can we get an option to convert to DNG but leave image in same place - ie, ADD as DNG?
It would be even better if I have the option to automatically delete the RAW files upon conversion.

A slightly cumbersome workaround: Add the original raw photos and then, after importing them, convert them to DNG (Library > Convert Photo to DNG).
