In Scribus this is called in inline graphic. Essentially, you can copy 
any image frame, then insert it like text into a text frame.
Select an image frame with image, press Ctrl+C. Then select text frame 
(you need to do this in Insert Contents mode -- double click on text 
frame, put the cursor where you want to insert the graphic you have 
copied), then select Edit > Paste or type Ctrl+V.

As far as tacking an image onto the edge of the text frame, in Scribus 
you would group the two frames -- select both, then Item > Group.
