The files will be normally avilable under
C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Mail directory.

OK. I found the files, but how do I append or add old and new email and news files together?

You cannot append these files from a file level, however, you can create a new mailbox and just do a drag and copy of everything from these folders into the new mailbox (.pst).   Take the newly created .pst file to any other outlook program.
