First you need to make sure your OFW is 3.55 or lower then upgrade to either Rebug 4.41.2 or Rogero 4.41 both are fine.
Now about downloading games, before you do that you need to get an external HDD
WD Elements or My Passport if you have PS3 FAT(the old model)
Use any partition program like SwissKnife or EAUSUS to format your External HDD from NTFS to FAT32
Then create a folder in the root of the HDD & rename it to GAMES or GAMEZ
Now download game backups from any website or any host you prefer.
Have a nice day.

Since you mentioned its from the first models, which one of these is your PS3 model?
CECHAxx,CECHBxx,CECHCxx,CECHExx,CECHGxx,CECHHxx & so on in an alphabetical order.
because you'll need to downgrade, depending on your model you may downgrade using progskeet or a hardware flasher.

If your OFW is 3.55 or lower, you can play back up games. But if your OFW is 3.56 or above you must downgrade it. But you must sure that your console is not a 3xxx and 4xxx model series. people says this console series can play back up game with some component (like modchip in PS2), I hope its true.

CECHK03 80Gbs NOR, check your system firmware if its 3.55 or lower then yes you can only install a CFW & play game backups
if its 3.56 or higher then you'll need a hardware flasher to downgrade to 3.55 then install a CFW.
