You can only apply the any of the styles in the current opened libraries as well as any styles in the document's graphic styles panel. Once the style has been added, you can then edit the style via the appearance panel
The graphic styles can be added to the applications / program files folder.
The AI files can be added to the Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 or Adobe Illustrator CC 2015.3 CC 2014 CS6 CS5 etc depending on the version you are using.
The AI files can be placed into the en_GB (or en_US etc) presets 'graphic styles' folder (you don't need to as you can always use the other library feature of Illustrator
The AI graphic styles can be added to the graphic styles folder and they can also be removed as well as renamed.
You don't need to add the AI files to the application folder, as you can also add the graphic styles to your user account instead (I prefer that for my own files). Go to the ~/Library and then application support / Adobe / Adobe Illustrator 18 etc / en_GB (or en_US etc) and the "graphic styles" folder.
