Buying expansion for non-steam game

I bought tropico 3 off of Gamersgate, because they had a sale at the time, and now I want to buy the expansion, but it's cheaper on Steam. Can I add tropico to my steam library and then buy the expansion off stema or would I have had to get the original from steam in order to expand it through steam?

I googled it and found a similar thread somewehre else but eveyrone that replied was pretty much just making ugesses.

I think you might be able to redeem Tropico 3 to your steam library. Just look for a code in your box.

No you cant. You can add shortcut with none steam game thingy but the expansion will not work with gamersgate copy.

Like the steam page says for Tropico 3: Absolute Power "Downloadable Content
Requires the base game Tropico 3 - Steam Special Edition on Steam in order to play."

Which retail CD Keys are accepted on Steam?

This is the most Bull thing I have ever seen happen before. I have the Hard Copy sitting here before me and I wanted to get the expansion. Now I know that I can't I really am annoyed...
