Unzip them with your PC. The .alx and .cod files are probably in the .zip.
You'd then use BlackBerry Desktop software to install the files on your BlackBerry.

BlackBerry Desktop Manager lest you add/remove programs you download to your computer, update the BlackBerry's software (more quickly than Over-The-Air), and perform backups/restores/syncs with your pc (usually with Outlook).

You should connect your BB to your pc through USB (direct - no USB hub), configure it to sync to Outlook (it will walk you through the steps), and perform a sync. This will bring contacts, notes, and tasks from your pc onto your BlackBerry. You can add programs and themes through Desktop Manager as well.

Check out BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ for the ABC's of using your new BB.

I hope you got a genuine BlackBerry Data Plan for your new device. Without it most of the features won't work.

You need to install it, not just download it.
