How to load them in PS

They are all in ABR as well as PNG (the earlier sets are only in ABR so cannot be used in other applications). The ABRs are best loaded into Photoshop by adding the ABRs to the folder of presets and then accessing them via right side dropdown menu. Alternatively, you can use the load / replace commands to select the ABRs from a different folder location

How to combine them in millions of ways

The presets are mainly all set with opacity 100% (during creation). You can always take the strokes and apply them again with opacity 50% or different opacities to create a more realistic brush stroke. You can then re-save them using the edit menu define command. Using combinations of strokes with differing sizes and differing opacities (as well as perhaps using different blending modes such as lighten or darken), you can quickly create unusual and intersesting textured strokes with the supplied selection. You can extend this even further by using the presets panel found in the window menu, to create even more amazing presets. You can also apply different colors (though you always have to remember that the brush strokes are only grayscale so some combinations of strokes will have no effect whatsoever) and mix in special effects to the mix. Also, you can also use the various tools found in the toolbox to apply dodge and burn and blurs to different parts of the stroke to create a more uneven / distressed effects. In many cases, the easiest way to create very complex Photoshop ink brushes is to use layers - the layers can be removed and hidden as well as re-arranged to build up ever more complex graphics. If you wish to save all the steps in creating a complex ink effects then you can save the file as a PSD and you can then always add and remove layer steps. At the end of all the steps, the key thing is to save the stroke to the presets panel and save the set. You can also, if you are using the new October 2014 release (and beyond) creative cloud subscription then you can also add them to the libraries panel and re-use them at any future point as well as use them quickly in Adobe Illustrator.
