Hello, welcome to the forum.
You will have to fast him until he is hungry enough to try pellets. Be advised, some individuals would rather die than eat man made foods. . . Many of mine are as such.
You can put in plants. But I wouldn't directly use plants from nature or ponds. Keep them in separate container for a week or two. Hopefully possible parasites will die off.
