Hi just started playing HL2 and now I want to add HL2 episode 1 and 2 which I purchased from stream via download. Any idea where this came be done without purchasing it again which it seems to want me to do.

I have licenses since it is on my stream account

Once you have purchased a game on Steam then the games are permanently tied to the account which they were purchased on.

To download an uninstalled game go to the Library part of Steam and make sure that "Show" is set to "All Games". To install an uninstalled game find the name of the game in the list, right click on it and select "install game" and Steam will start downloading the game (after you confirm you want to download it)
