Directly, it would be Right-click cell > Insert Comment > right-click on shaded area on the outside of the comment box > Format Comment > Colors and Lines > Fill > Color > Fill Effects > Picture > (Browse to picture) > Click OK

When you hover over the cell, it picture will appear.

Using C#? You can't. Inserting pictures into cells is not do-able. Your approach should be something like trying to align them with the cell by using the top and left properties.

You'll probably have to use Sheet.Shapes.AddPicture() and calculate coordinates where to put the picture. Google the function and coordinates, and you'll probably hit the workaround code people have been doing to achieve just that.

Even a third party commercial object can't do it?

I'll defer to the other experts on the 3rd party object. I haven't heard of any.
