I bought Half Life on Steam a while ago, but eventually lost my save files.

Now that I have installed Steam on a new computer, I would like to resume from where I left off.

Is it possible to skip chapters?

Are there some other things I should do (e.g. giving myself ammo because I'd have none)? How?

This is possible on the PC version by making use of a the console, which you can open by pressing ~. You can then jump to any level with the map x console command, where x is the code for the level you wish to jump to. The list of levels, along with other console commands, can be found here.
