You're supposed to extract the right folders into your usermod directory. The usermod folder is usually found here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\sourcefilmmaker\game\usermod When you download a zip containing a model, the zip should contain both a "materials" and a "models" folder. If you paid attention to the structure of the "usermod" directory, you should see that these folder are also present there. You have to copy those folders from the zip to the usermod folder. Windows will say that a folder with the same name already exists there and will ask you to continue. Choose 'yes'. Once it's done copying, you should be able to pick your model in SFM.

Any model can be loaded into any map. You can load your newly added models just like any other model. In the top left, there should be a plus button. Click it, and in the dropdown choose "add animationset for new model." You will then be presented with a list of models to choose from. The newly added models will show up there.
