edit: I am new to the earthengine or in fact any gis programming. But I am not sure why the question is unclear, it is simple. In every programming language/library there is a way to save/read data locally or to drive (in this case) using standard text, csv, json etc., formats. So is there a way here or are we restricted just to use asset manager to import the two types of data? (if you are aware even the python interface supports that (as it runs locally), which I came to know recently). Because it is very obvious need when I program unless my whole code going to be written in the code editor, which is unlikely, especially if I want to do any serious computing involving other 3rd party packages, plus it feels the programming is very restricted when using code editor.
