Is there a way to "add" a game to your library, or "flag" games as beaten, even if you don't own them?

Like most of you, Steam is my main PC gaming gateway. I'm glad to see EA coming back... I sort my library in a few ways. One of the ways is I catagorize titles that I have beaten. Now with these EA games available on steam again, I wanted to add them to this organization. I beat them on Origin, but I don't own them on steam.

Is there any way to "add" a library entry for a title you don't own on steam? Somehow flag it as beaten? I'm not sure what happens when I try to add a non steam game, if a library entry is permanently made, or is it just on the local system. Any insight appreciated!

If something like this doesn't exist, it would be cool for a use to be able to flag a game as beaten in the steam store. And then in their library an entry would show up with a special symbol notating that you don't own the game on the steam platform, but it is in your library because you own or on some other service.

You can add a non steam game and then categorize it. I think it works with minecraft, but not with origin games or epic

it totally works with origin! all you have to do is add origin.exe as a non-steam game, then all games on it will have steam overlay.. you'll have to turn off origin in-game overlay tho, cause it doesn't like the steam one very much
