It would depend on the .img file(s). Can you provide a link to where you got the file(s) from so someone can take a look at it(them) and give you more specific information?

Usually you would only create an .exe file if you wanted an installer to accompany maps that you're going to distribute to others. To install .img files, see if this helps: http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/tutorials/how-to-load-.img-files-into-mapsource-with-mapsettoolkit/

To create an installer, see this: http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/tutorials/how-to-create-garmin-topo-maps---part-9---compiling-data/
