Then, import the inductor's gds file to the EM simulator and Key in the process parameter above.

I really agree with Tony (tboloney). The "best em solver" depends completely on the application. There is no one EM software application or approach that solves all problems equally well. They all have strengths, they all have weaknesses.
HFSS is great for many applications, but certainly not for all. I wouldn't touch it

At 9.5GHz parasitics of components are very important, and also their placement on the PCB. Ideally would be to have the S-parameters of each lumped component used, but sometimes is hard to get them up to this frequency.
