Just wanted to know if we need to texture map the texture on the model with code or is it better to just import a model with textures already on him? (considering its even possible)

You load the model, which usually includes values for the vertex coordinates, the normal vectors, the texture coordinates, and the color values, associate to each vertex. Then, you load the texture corresponding to the model, and you apply both. You never hard-code anything, you write code to load everything from files and apply them (usually with vertex-buffer functions).
