    Have you started the game, since you installed it? Sounds strange but it's important.

    You don't need to replace anything - The game draws it files from .gcf files. Everything that is stuck in your personal HL2 folder overrides the data from the .gcf files (unless you play on an sv_pure server, in which case its drawn from the .gcf files again). IIt works similar to the "override" directory in NWN. In case you want to remove all your skins, just remove the models and materials and sounds folders, and the game will run normally.

    I recently played through HL2 with a high res character pack. Just copy the contents over to the folder in your screenshot and it should work. Too bad the Steam Workshop only works for TF2 and Skyrim so far.
