I would like to tell my users about certain Freeware files, and to provide a link to their website so that they can download the file. E.g. Crimson Editor.

I had naturally thought Download Module is the right thing to use, of course then it complained I was leeching the file, and procede to "lecture" me on whats leeching.

However, I noticed in IT-HQ site, they seemed to be able to do so. (look here)

Any reason why? Did they hack the download mod? Did I do something wrong? Or should I use other module to achieve the same thing? I will be glad to provide just a URl to the Crimson Editor's main Website.

Can someone briefly explain what's the best (and correct way) to do this?

There's an option in the downloads module admin to allow/disallow leeching. You can also give permission to particular sites to download directly.

The somewhat hostile lecture you receive is probably the standard one that ships with XOOPS so don't take it personally Its not the nicest notification message I have seen...should probably change IMO.
