You can add images in a couple of ways, but of course no text-reflow will

1. You can use Acrobat's TouchUp Object Tool to cut and paste images from
one PDF document to another. This means you will have to first convert the
image you want to work with into a PDF file.

2. You can import an image into a button created with the Form tool.

There is actually a 3rd possibility, involving the Stamp annotation tool.
Consult the Acrobat documentation for how to add images to the Stamp tool.
