Check out http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Category:NPCs and then http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Category:Choreography and finally http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Scripted_sequence

But you basically place an npc entity somewhere in the map and use scripted_sequences (simple) or choreographer (advanced) to make them do things.

in order to make new NPCs your programming, if your just faking it by replacing original NPCs with new models and effects you can manage that with hammer, faceposer, modeling, and some scripting.
