Can I add the
matplotlib library without installing it? If only pyplot function is needed from this library.
Is there an option to just copy the files I want to the
python libraries folder?

If you are working in Python 3.x in Windows, then go to the folder in which Python is located, go to the script, call the command line and run the command from the script folder
pip.exe install matplotlib
