Rein here from Shopify. Great question!
Importing products directly from Alibaba can be done with an app or manually. For example, if you wish to use an app you would be able to eventually add your images on Shopify for sure, but the initial import will take everything from the original product. You can review your options for apps here.
The manual method would involve you taking the details from Alibaba and pasting them into your own store, adding your own images, prices etc. You can follow this guide here for adding images to your product. Once done you can then proceed as normal and order from Alibaba when you receive an order.
Both are widely used and are entirely up to your own preferences.
