Hi

Go to the "Ads" tab and click the green button "New ads".

... and the swf files are considered image ads (which might also be slightly confusing since in truth they are not!)

Don't use the ad builder - just add a new ad and choose image ad - that should work...

It looks as if you are trying to add the new ad to a campaign that is targeting the search network only - you need to set the campaign to target the Display Network as well (or only) as image ads will only run on the GDN.
