I know i can add text on top of my picture in a text box but i want the picture to sit behind the cell text, in word there is an option for this but i cant seem to find it in excel, help please.

Excel does not have that functionality. Pictures sit in a layer that is always on top of the cell contents. You cannot have a picture inside a cell with cell text showing.
