How to run already installed Windows games through PoL?

I see the point of scripts, and the different prefixes for the different games, nice idea as to use a specific version of Wine to run those, however I have a question:

What would be the best way to get working a bunch of games that I have already installed over the years through regular Wine (installed from my distro's repos, Fedora in my case) through POL? I do have the installation media, but it so happens that I have already installed them, I just would like to use POL to launch them, with the best wine version and prefix for said games. Is there any way to do that?

I thought it might be something like a sort of "import" (thinking about POL as a kind of Windows programs manager, a la iTunes for Windows apps through wine), but I see no way to such a thing... Could I simply point to the installed games as the "install source", instead?
