Please tell me what you mean exactly by loading Tramp in the *scratch*

I know about installing a package from a tar file or I can load
individual lisp files but not a whole directory full of lisp files...

I did that and Emacs answered me: 2.5.1-pre.  I assumed that this must
surely be  But what you wrote about emacs -Q is more

I'll loaded all 20 tramp sources from their Elpa folder and the
