Stairs are mainly made up of rectangular brushes either in size 8 or 16 units. The maximum step size bots can use are 18 units, but to make a smooth stairway I'd suggest using 8 units. You can also make curved stairways by just creating curved patch meshes and then clipping them to make steps. Ramps are the same process where you're just using the clipper tool.

Just copy the code into a txt file and rename it my_stairs.map
Place my_stairs.map in your quake 3 maps folder, then open it in your level editor.

It's just a quick example I made in about 3 minutes. There are many ways to approach it, but It'll give you an idea.
