I need to create a program, script or something similar to be able to fill many PDF files form fields on Windows.
Text fields are very easy to manage in many languages, instead an image field is more complicated when you need to put inside a PDF file and not an image (PNG, JPG and so on). I tried many third party libraries without success.
How can I achieve this? I can use vbs or other programming languages without problems. What I searching is an hint and some examples to find the right solution.

I checked very quickly the doc, you are right, it seems interesting.
I'll do some experiments
No, not possible.
mmm ok, so basically this is not what I need.
I'm searching a way to do this running Acrobat or everthing else from the command line.
I can't find any solution. Do you have other suggestions?
Are you trying to import the PDF file itself as an image, or the data from it (ie, the data in form fields)?
I'm trying to load the PDF file into another PDF with an image form field. With Adobe Acrobat DC it's very easy to do, you can simply click on the image form field and choose a pdf file.
What I need is to automate this process for many files running a script via command line. I can't open Acrobat, choose the file and save it, for more than 1000 PDFs. I need to do this automatically in some way.
You can use an Action in Acrobat to do it for multiple files, but it's not as robust as a command-line utility. I can't help you with the latter, I'm afraid.
Do you know if there is someone able to help me about this topic? For instance an expert in the Adobe Support Community about Adobe Acrobat automation via command line?
Because, I really don't know where I can find this information.
Acrobat can't be automated via the command-line. The solution you need is a stand-alone tool.
