You can get all kinds of plug-ins from http://www.flay.com, including shaders, but LightWave is very well-endowed with an excellent set of shaders of its own and I would recommend you start with those. As for reflection maps, what kind of images are you looking for?

If you want to reflect your scene in the mirror you can set your reflective surface to ray trace the whole scene, but it might take a while to render. If you want to reflection map, any kind of image will work, for instance you can use one of the sky images in the NewTek Texture Collection, available on the main site, especially for the puddle.
