What about using gpk-application? Invoke it from the command line or just find it using the search functionality under Activities.

It is a nice GUI utility to basically Add/Remove software without using the command line.

Alternatively double click the rpm file you downloaded and just install it (it will prompt for a password to complete the operation).

If you downloaded the rpm package and want to use the command line to install it you may use the following (I am assuming you are in the wheel group and can run all the commands as super user using sudo):

sudo rpm -Uvh package-name.rpm

This will work only if all the package's dependencies are satisfied. If not, you will have to install one by one all the missing packages following the suggestions given by the output of the previous command.
