Copy a puzzle in LifeHistory format from Golly, open the SoD GUI, fiddle with the mousewheel so that the Puzzle/Seed button reads "Puzzle", and click the "Puzzle" button.

-- Unless you mean adding new puzzles to the default set of puzzles that come with the SoDGame. Someone else would have to answer that one. Mysterious things have always gone wrong when I've tried to recompile that Java application... but mostly it's just that all the extra curly braces and semicolons start giving me the cold shudders, and I stop trying too soon.

How do I make Golly recognise Python?

Just go to the open pattern thing and then go wherever (i.e. basically anywhere on your files) your python script is, whether in Golly or not.
My rules:
They can be found here

Also, the tree game

Or, if that didn't answer your question -- install Python, making very very sure sure that you install the version of Python 2.7.16 that matches your version of Golly. I.e., 32-bit Python if your Golly is 32-bit, or 64-bit Python if your Golly is 64-bit. You find that out by checking the status bar when you first open Golly.
