Just save the 2d picture from the internet like you would any other picture. Then open your program in Alice and click on file > create billboard > and find where you saved the picture to. Once you import the picture as a billboard you can fool around with the move settings so that it fits into the whole screen.

It takes a long time and a lot of dedication to learn about artificial intelligence programs (AI). The best I can come up with to start is to make it draw a random path to follow and if the pacman is in sight of the ghost, to go after it. I'd like to warn you that it may or may not be easy depending on the approach you take.

In my experiences, the Pac-Man games I've played (it was the demo on my cell phone!) have specific ghosts move toward a designated location (a corner) and circle a wall or something. Now that version is too easy for a player, so what I suggest is if you can't make a great AI that follows Pac-Man when in sight, have the ghosts turn a random direction (left, right, forward) at each intersection.

If you want you can take the easy way out and just take the 2-d picture of the pacman ghost. Since it never turns, you only need 1 image of it that just goes in different directions depending on the corners. You would need 1 for each color ghost.

I haven't started my version yet, I have to focus on school more, and when I come back to Alice I have a different game I am going to start. I probably will not make a pacman game, but if you upload a world I will be more than happy to fix things for you.
