you can install an individual package by:
dpkg --install package.deb
But if you want to download more packages and use apt, add these lines to
deb ftp://ftp.nl.uu.net/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb ftp://ftp.nl.uu.net/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US testing/non-US main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ potato/updates main contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-non-US/ potato/non-US main contrib
deb-src ftp://ftp.nl.uu.net/debian stable main contrib non-free
This will give you access to the stable (potato) and testing (woody)
archive, as well as to non-us, security updates and sources. Change
ftp.nl.uu.net with your favorite (nearby) server.
If you install a package now with apt, dependencies are solved.

You could have a local archive for packages, but that is only attractive
if you have losts of non-debian distributed packages.
