As long as your old pc is working no need to stress.

Open Cubase and go to "File," "Open Project," and select the project that you wish to add the MIDI file into from the list that appears.
Go back to "File," "Import," and then click on "MIDI File." Click "No" when asked if you want to save the MIDI file in a new project.
Choose the VST instrument that you wish to play the MIDI file by pressing "F11" on your computer keyboard and select it from the list that is generated. Verify that the "Show Inspector" tab on the left is illuminated, and you will be ready to play the MIDI file.
I'm thinking you assigned the MIDI file to a track, but without an instrument assigned to the track's channel strip, there is nothing there to generate sound from the MIDI ( MIDI is just an "instruction set" if you will, not a recording of sound, much like a music sheet ). So if that F11 shenanigan quoted above works, you should be able to assign a VST instrument to it, when in doubt, select one of the synths that ship with Cubase, just for the sake of hearing something, then you'll at least know that if there was a problem, it was related to this. If not, then we'll have to delve a little deeper.
Regarding the missing Halion, I just went to the bog ( details! ) and I have my subscriptions of Sound on Sound in there. This month's issue has a few pages on Cubase 6 along with a history map and it mentioned that between Cubase releases the pre-packaged version of Halion shrank, with all the features ( originally all available in Cubase 4, I think... ) only available in a separate version. So I'm thinking maybe that's why your old Halion settings won't work for you, assuming you not only switched computers, but also versions...

I know you don't use Cubase, so you can't help there, but I no idea what that means.
As for the Halion VST, I got it working. When I installed Cubase on the new laptop, I forgot to install all the add-ons. But it's still not working
