Hi, this may have been covered off before so please forgive me if this is old ground. I have just purchased a second PS3 for the house. I have a PSN account, my lads do not.

Can someone please step me through the process of sharing the software and then downloading and installing some of the content from the original PS3 on the new PS3?

You need to sign in on the other PS3 with your account and set it as a primary console. You are then able to download the games and play them. You can only set two PS3 consoles as primary. If a console is set as primary it means any user on the PS3 is able to play the game, if the console is not primary the purchasers account needs to be logged in and connected to the PSN to be able to play.
How many PS3s do you want the games to be on? Edit: I see it says you just purchased your second. So you will be able to set them both as primary and use any account to play the games
