You should be able to download the steam installer (.deb file) from https://store.steampowered.com/about/ and then just run it by double clicking it in the downloads folder. Then, just log in, and any games that run on linux that you have in your library can be played, though they might lag. I have only tried it on the RPi os for laptops, but it should work on the standard Raspbian desktop.

That won't work, it's designed for an x86 based PC.

Follow Dougielawson's advice and use steam link, not steam.
Of course, your PC is still required in order to actually use it, so unless you want to play your steam games in a different room of the house without lugging your computer around, just play your steam games on your PC itself.
