The easiest way is to insert an image is as a billboard using the "Make Billboard" option from the file menu. The open file dialogue will tell you the types of files that can be accepted. Note that if you import .png files, alpha level transparency is supported - but you have to have made the image in a program that supports that.

A billboard behaves like any other object, and you can also try the billboard image as a skin for any other object. Just select the billboard's texture for the object's skin texture - the scaling may be off, however - badly in some cases.
