You do it the same way you attach any image to a surface.
In this case the node is specifically labeled “Panoramic Image” instead of default.
Just click on “image source” and browse to where you have stored your HDR imsge

Since I can’t see what you downloaded, I have no idea why it’s blurry.
It may be a low quality image or your camera focal length is too long.

There are many threads at rendo by BagginsBill covering his EnvSphere, you might check some of those
He is also active at RDNA, but I rarely go there so I don’t know if it is discussed there to any depth

HDRs often come in several resolutions - a low res version for lighting, with a higher resolution image for use as a world sphere around the scene or a reflection map. I think the conversion tools supplied for DS’ uberEnvironment automatically make a low res version for lighting.
