WooCommerce: Add a Custom Download File @ My Account
If you sell no downloadable products, the Downloads section of the WooCommerce My Account page will always be empty (in this case, you should completely hide the My Account Download tab). Besides, if you do sell downloadable products but customers never purchased such items, the same will happen.

PHP Snippet: Add a Downloadable File for All Users @ My Account Page
First of all, you’ll need to place your downloadable file on a public URL. I chose the /wp-content folder, the one where also images are stored in WordPress.
Then, define the “product name”, the download button label, and you’re good to go. This will open the file inside the browser (forcing a secure download is much more complicated).
This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101
