Frankly, I fail to see difference to the add-on product concept, which is
basically a repository with addiotional information.

Is it possible to install an add-on product by downloading & opening a file?

In general? Yes it is. If that file contains information about which URL
should be used as a new repository. Add-On product handling then takes
the additional information (required packages/patterns/installation
workflow) from installation.xml and/or content file.
