4) Select one of the sets
5) Select the other library option
7) They are now added to the document library and can be used any time you open the document / artboard.
Stored in AI files. You cannot access the effects in another application - only the paths will be seen by Photoshop.
They are accessible via the styles palette - that is the only way they can be applied.
They are generally stored in version 10 but in some cases such as scribble or aspect effects they are stored in a later type and cannot generally be opened in an earlier version of AI (they do not work in the earlier versions of AI such as 8)
Apply a tile to a selected path and then go to the palette and select the new option.

9) Or drag a fill or stroke to the delete (or click)
The file sets all come with the live effects in AI format. They, the live effects, are not active via the artboard but via the styles palette. You can open the source material files (though I would suggest making a backup of your work as they can corrupt - I have had that enough times over the years) and modify some of the effects and re-save the set
To use them as actual live effects then place the AI file in the graphic styles folder of AI and then access them via the styles palette open library functionality (if found in the styles folder then the set will appear in the list, if not you will have to browse for the library).
Once opened, you can then apply the effects to many different paths in AI
If you have a number of the sets and lots and lots of AI files, you might like to create one super library of all the effects. Not particularly recommended as that will probably make quite a hit on the addons of AI Illustrator but if you have a lot of memory and a super powerful machine you can always create that AI file. Just open a completely new AI file and then open each of the libraries in turn via the palette and then select all the live effects required (many are made up of fill / stroke / scribble combinations) and these will be added to the current open file. On finishing all the file sets, you can then save that file as a massive AI file of all the effects. I am not sure it is a great idea but I have been asked a number of times for this. Perhaps not so much the saving of the file (and it might corrupt) but I would imagine it will be fairly slow on opening - certainly slower than going to the individual files.
