Bought a refurbed chrome book for mrs ck as she wanted somethign with a bigger screen but it doesnt have play store so she cant play the games she did before, i have read you can add it to a chrome book but its a bit beyond my tech to sort it out

Not sure what pay store is, but have you had a browse of the 'add apps and extensions' tab in the Chrome browser?

Go to section in bottom rh corner of the screen with the time and click it . On the top you'll see settings ( cog logo) click on that. On the left hand panel that opens you will see "Playstore", click on it to select defaults.
May have been there all the time. Did you click your launcher in the bottom left hand corner? That should bring up all the default apps of which Playstore should be one.
