I'm sorry to tell you this, but there is not such thing as Lyx packages. All of them are Latex packages. So unfortunately you need to, at least, know how to install and use a package in LaTeX, as there is no easy way to interface a LaTeX package with Lyx. Installation depends on your OS and LaTeX distribution. Usage is OS independent.
