I am pretty new in CFX and  I don't know how I can define material properties in CFX. this is not like FLUENT at all! for example in the material library , there are just air and water! and should be imported material . in my project, fluid is Helium and in CFX , there is  He at STP? what does it mean ?

Also how can I define helium properties including conductivity, density , a function of T?

Many thanks in advance

STP means Standard Temperature and Pressure.  To explore more materials you have to go through the Material Group and you will find Helium under "Gas Phase Combustion" for example. Material properties can be of course be made of Temperature.
