You just need to put them in your custom_stories folder.
There is only one thing different from Steam version: Steam version doesn't have a redist folder, but has the same layout once you see Amnesia.exe in the folder, rest is pretty much same.

Oh! You were the guy who commented earlier on a the video for it - sorry I didn't respond.

You would want to go to something along the lines of C:\Program Files\Amnesia The Dark Descent (or whatever the file would be, it might also be named something like Frictional Games)

In there you should have a folder named 'redist' - I believe in this folder should be your custom_stories folder.

Just plop the custom story's folder you have in there and you should be good to go.

This may be a bit false since I don't have that version of the game and am going by faded memory of past discussions, but I hope it helps.

I found a amnesia folder with another folder called main and in it is my amnesia profile. There is also a folder called redist but it isnt in the amnesia folder and in it there is nothing to do with amnesia the dark descent
