Open the Palettes dialog. (Windows -> Dockable Dialogs -> Palettes)
Create a new palette.
Create a new color from the foreground color. Do this sixteen times, for a sixteen-color palette. (Right-click in the Palettes window, or use the new icon (folded paper) in the Palettes window.)
Double-click a color to edit it. Manually enter all of your colors into the palette; make sure that the color that you wish to be transparent is the first color in the palette.
Once this is done, save your palette. Give it a name you'll remember.
Paste your image into GIMP.
Image -> Mode -> Indexed...
Radio button: Use custom palette.
Select your palette.
Uncheck "remove unused colors from colormap".
That should do it for you. Just save it as a BMP after that. (Or PNG. If PNG doesn't work, do BMP.)
