Get help with using AutoHotkey and its commands and hotkeys

Can AHK use third-party modules like Python? How to use it? Where can I find these modules?
You might be referring to libraries, of which AutoHotkey has plenty. A large centralized location of them is managed by Ixiko (also known as Frosti on the AHK forum)
Also, AutoHotkey is not Python, so don't expect the languages to have the same purpose, behavior, organization, or culture. Just saying. To add various third-party ahk files to your existing scripts, you can simply use #Include (https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/_Include.htm). You can also add files, dlls, and pictures to compiled scripts by using FileInstall (https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/FileInstall.htm). Though a bit more complicated, you can add various C functions using MCode- (https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=32, https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4642)
Many thanks, @SOTE, for the link to lxiko's compendium of third-party libraries on GitHub. I wasn't aware of it before.
