I have an affiliate site and I am new on this platform. I want to add images into my site.
Can I take images from Google directly without changing anything for them?

No, unless you do a search with the correct license.
When you do an image search, there is an option to select the license.
Go to Images. Enter a search term. You should see a Tools button toward the left side. Click on it. It becomes gray and a set of dropdowns appear toward the right side.
Click on Usage Rights and select your expected usage. "Labeled for Reuse" is probably want you want assuming your site is commercial.
Click on the image and double check that the image is indeed offered for commercial usage on the site where it is made available.
Searching that way you are not unlikely to find websites that have large collections of such images. For example: https://pixabay.com/
Note that in most cases those websites give you the choice of clicking on other images that will take you to a different site where images are not free.
There are a number of websites that do offer free images that can be used for commercial purposes.
CC Search will allow you to search a number of online venues for suitable images https://search.creativecommons.org/
