How can I install Multilib Packages from the Multilib Repo?

Hi I understand the disabled feature of using pacman while it running given the immutable part of the distro. I am not sure how to enable the multilib repo. I tried uncommenting the two lines in the pacman.conf and running
sudo akshara update
sudo akshara update
and it didn't allow me to install the package that I wanted which steam is what I would like to install.
Solution:
add it as an alternate mirror

this should work for now until I can make an MR to add multilib permanently

package-repos:
- name: 'REPO_NAME'
- repo-url: 'REPO_URL'
package-repos:
- name: 'REPO_NAME'
- repo-url: 'REPO_URL'
reading the docs so like that and then I can just insert the package in the packages entry to install?
