You are right (about "ありますか" and "いますか"), we use "いる" for people and "ある" for things. Are there a lot of foreigners in Japan? -> 日本には外国人がたくさんいますか? (as you said) Are there a lot/many foreigners living in Japan? -> 日本に住んでいる(すんでいる)外国人はたくさんいますか? =)

日本には外国人がたくさんいますか?is 100% correct and natural:) Are there a lot/many foreigners living in Japan?=日本には外国人がたくさん住(す)んでいますか?
