    If you already have the .apk file, plug your phone into your PC and mount the sd card as storage. Copy the file there. Unmount your phone and using a file browser like Astro or ES File, tap on the .apk file. You should be prompted to install it. You will need to make sure that menu>settings>applications>Unknown sources is enabled.

    So you can follow lunatic59's suggestion you need to use internet on your phone to install a File Manager such as the ones mention by lunatic59. Otherwise even if you copy the .APK files into your phone you won't be able to open it.

    If you installed astro, then there should be an icon in your app drawer. (The grid icon on your home screen that is in the lower left corner.)
