Yes. The Advanced Mode in Dell operating system Recovery Tool allows you to create a USB recovery media using an operating system image file in ISO file format. This is useful if you downloaded the operating system recovery image using a Linux, Mac, or Android device.
Typical operating system recovery image files in an ISO file format are between 5-16 GB in size (the file size varies between different operating systems). Once the file is downloaded, the Dell operating system Recovery Tool verifies the integrity of the file before creating the USB recovery media. The time to download and verify that the integrity of the file can vary depending on network speed and file size.
If you download a large file through a Dell online application (such as the Dell operating system Recovery Tool), you may receive a "Not enough space on drive" error. This is due to a space limitation on the hard drive where the files are being saved to. Some operating system recovery images can be up to 16 GB in file size.
To correct this error, free up additional disk space on the hard drive. For information about freeing up disk space in Microsoft Windows, see the Dell knowledge base article How to Free up Disk Space in Microsoft Windows.
The operating system recovery image may not contain the latest device drivers for your Dell computer. The latest device drivers are available at Dell.com/support/drivers. After the operating system is installed, Dell Technologies recommends that you download and install the latest device drivers.

Following this answer (it's a working solution), after downloading and extracting the firmware.zip file, you need to extract the firmware-iwlwifi_0.43_all.deb file (under MS Windows you can use altap Salamander) then extract the data.tar.xz go to /data/lib/firmware and copy all the contents to your USB (Fat32).
How I got it fixed: on the FAT32 USB drive with Kali Linux installer on it, there's a folder called firmware, but all files there are empty. So I went to pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree and copied all files to the firmware folder and allowed replacement. I also opened those .deb files I needed with 7zip, in 7zip I opened data.tar.xz/./lib/firmware and copied files from there to the root of the USB. (For Realtek device I copied the rtl_nic folder)
Goto this awesomedetect.com/how-to-provide-non-free-firmware-files-to-kali-linux-installer if you are still confused after reading the answer below. The process is well documented with great details there.
Live boot Kali Linux on your system to see if wifi and ethernet work fine in live boot or not. if wifi works fine on live boot then you don't even need to download anything from anywhere because non-free firmware files for most common wifi cards are already provided in kali Linux.
Copy all .deb files from this directory of your kali live boot usb : pool/non-free/firmware subdirectories to /firmware which is located in root of kali installation directory. If you downloaded any files during above step then include them in the same directory. Just copy them no need to extract them.
