Old Games
Can you add any old games you have on steam, so you own them via steam?

There is a list of games here:

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7480-WUSF-3601

It is not complete though, could do with an update.

For anything else you can add it as a short cut.

You mean games that have been using Steam? Than they are allready bound to your Profile.
Games that you bought via Steam are allways bound to your Profile.
If the old game is from Valve, you can try enter the CD-Key in Steam and it might activate it under Steam.

If you got an old game that is now avaiable through Steam, but you bought it as an Stand-Alone, you can only ask the Suport of the Game-Developer for an Steam-Key (it most likely won't work)

If the Game is not connected to Steam in any way - You can't add it.

Don't get your hopes up, there's usually little reason for publishers to transfer old copies to Steam.

Well, I had about 8 Games that worked by entering the CD-Key.
An obvious example was the "Half-Life - Generation" Box, but an unexpectet win was "Unmechanical" (or something like that) that was avaiable through Steam later than the Single CD-Version.
