welcome to the forums. Actually amBX should work with Steam games, and it does so for me.
Could you try to do the following for me?: Go to the Steam settings (right click to the tray icon, then left click "Settings", then to the tab "IN-GAME", then untick "Enable Steam Community In-Game", then click "OK" and have another try with a Steam game.
To get this right, this should not be the solution of cause, but I'd like to find out whether the Steam overlay might cause problems here.
Also, did you check whether the games appear in the the "Software" section of amBX control panel and are activated there?
