ハグリッドの声がくぐもっていた。
「淋しいといけないから、テディベアの縫いぐるみも入れてやった。」

Does the も particle in this sentence have the role as は, subject particle ? Then why is 入れて here still in active form ?

    This sentence doesn't sound like it was stated in isolation. Can you give us the surrounding sentences for some context?

    は is not a subject particle.

This も replaces を, the direct object marker.

  • テディベアの縫いぐるみを入れてやった。 I put in the Teddy Bear (for her/him).
  • テディベアの縫いぐるみ入れてやった。 I put in the Teddy Bear (for her/him), too.
  • も can safely replace を as well as は. I'm a bit surprised that some pages (like this one) have failed to mention this fact.
  • ~を入れる = put something in (maybe into a coffin, in this context?)
  • やる here is a subsidiary verb that indicates the action taker does it for the sake of someone.

So no passive voice is concerned in this sentence.
