I got some window decorations from KDE-look.org and I went into settings to change it but it doesn't give me the option to install decorations from file. How do I do so, if it's even possible?

It depends ;)
Engine + decoration files
Example #1- Aurorae - engine included
The Aurorae decoration engine is part of the KDE.
GHNS: System Settings > Workspace Apperance > Window Decorations > Get New Decorations
Manual from a file: Unpack the theme to the ~/.kde/share/apps/aurorae/themes/
Example #2- deKorator - external engine
Description: Windows decoration engine for KDE 4 using user-supplied PNG files With deKorator, easily create your own window decoration for KDE 4! deKorator uses your own made images for buttons, borders and so on. Go ahead and be creative! An example called uglyTheme is provided to show its possibilities. . Themes can be created by the user with the help of a drawing program or can be downloaded from http://www.kde-look.org/index.php?xcontentmode=21 . This is a windows decoration engine, not a style. Homepage: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/deKorator?content=87921
After the installation of the engine: System Settings > Workspace Apperance > Window Decorations > deKorator
The deKorator has an option to install the theme from a file.
