It would be a very good idea to provide charts, tables, pictures because of their visual appeal. People like pictures, and charts and tables can present information in ways that text paragraphs can not. So go ahead and include (embed) them on your pages.
As for links to other websites, that would depend on what you are linking to and how you configure them to open. If you can get away with not linking to other sites (i.e., put the info on your pages instead of just linking to the content on the other site), then all the better because what we want is for visitors to be clicking through to the vendors' sites when they navigate away from our websites.If you absolutely have to link to other websites to improve the user experience, be very selective as to what you are linking to and make the external page open in a new window so that visitors do not necessarily navigate away from your site.
