I am having a difficult time trying to get the effects using the steamer.p

Does anybody have any quick ideas or tips and tricks, that I could use to get the effects that the steamer plug?

Or have I miss understood the effects that the steamer plug can do ? or am I using it wrong?

I want the Light effects of dense foggy air ?

Then I don't think you should be using Steamer, that was for something like 5.6. Why not hypervoxels or volumetric fog?

If you have Steamer listed and Hypervoxels Doubler, then you have installed the legacy plugins that come with LW since version 6.0.

The Steamer plugins have been replaced (in terms of function) by in-built volumetrics for lights so you can ignore them unless you are trying to render scenes from 5.5 or 5.6 :)

The doubler plugin for Hypervoxels (there should also be one for Steamer, but I digress) is also a legacy plugin AFAIK. It was designed to help speed up the rendering for the plugin (it rendered every other line and the doubler filled in the other lines by approximation). Again, it is likely to be of no use to you unless you are using scenes from LW 5.6.
