Are you sure it's vmf not rmf?
You can go to Tools-> Prefab Factory... But you can load only .rmf's there. idk

Select all (by dragging with select tool across your WHOLE map) and make it ALL smaller. If you don't mean to edit your map afterwards, that's all. If you will need to make changes later, this might be problematic.

Copy your .vmf to ...\Steam\SteamApps\--UserName--\sourcesdk\bin\prefabs

Then, in Teh Hammer, when using brush tool, you will be able find it under the Prefabs.

Source SDK will make source maps. If you want to make maps for HL2DM, CS:S, TF2 etc then use the Source SDK. Otherwise continue to use the other Hammer Editor.

I did understand what you meant. The Hammer that you downloaded from this site will make maps for Counter-Strike 1.6. So basically, use that one.
