Now, I'd like to import packages, like numpy and pandas, but nothing will install.  I figure, if I can just install everything, I can simply use it when I need it, and if I don't need it, then I just won't use it.

As others have stated, this is not practical with Python. If you were to 
install every single package from PyPI, you'd end up with packages like 
funny 0.1 or Barun_Heehaw, which is described as "A sample junk 
project." (No, I'm not joking.)
