“I have some photos in a folder on my Mac's desktop. I want them in my iPad's Camera Roll. I don't wanna use iTunes syncing because I just want this single bunch of pics added to my iPad camera app. Can I copy photos from Mac folders to iPad without iTunes?”

Exporting photos from iOS device to computer is quite easy, while things are different in terms of pictures transferring between Mac and iPad/iPhone. If you have tons of images stored on your Mac computer and want to be accessible to them at anytime and anywhere, you can consider importing photos to iPad Pro/Mini/Air. With its portability and high resolution screen, iPad makes it enjoyable to view and share photos with friends or families.
