I don't know for sure but I would try the roleplayer's hall.

I'm pretty sure you can get dice there and I also recall a booth where you could get loaded...

The RPG hall is usually hall 6, but yes, one of the dice sellers is often in hall 9. The hall plans are online already, so you can check for yourself.

Most of them are from Chessex and I think they might attend.

I would think in any game that uses D6. For example in a racing game that uses dice if You take the loaded die and give the other players unloaded ones You come out ahead most of the time.

Or in Settlers of Catan You would build where the "better numbers" are - with loaded dice You can make sure that Catan is less luck-dependent.

Sure the experienced gamers here on BGG would know where to use these dice and could get some hints on how do use them in ways that are not too obvious - You dont want to burden Your gaming buddies with knowledge do You?

Other good reasons: novelty factor, as an interesting design space for uneven distributions, and dice collections. I've been interested in getting at least one loaded die for mine for a while, but haven't really pursued it. There's non-cheat-y reasons to want one.

I Was a GM in a long running role playing game,

It was a superhero game, and the powers were rolled up on a table.

The player who shall remain nameless managed to roll the Luck power three times - it was a one percent chance - and came in two sub categories, the ability to influence luck in game and to influence chance of doing something in the game world. I let hime have a D20 with two criticals in it (20 twice), and when I was rolling to hit him I rolled a D20 with two Fumbles and no crits ( double 1).

I think that was a fair way of giving him his super luck without clueing the other players in too much that his powers were a bit boring, and since he did not have any real combat powers, magic or anything else he was defined by stumbling onto clues etc. (the fact he was an immortal grandson of an alien, and had lived since the middle ages, and could program a computer by interfering with the electricity in the chip at a distance of a few meters.)

I have to say that Loaded dice as a GM are great eveners - I have a D20 with an extra one replacing a 20 that is often rolled when the players need a break because they have been unlucky with running down a bad guy with a world shattering plan, and they cheer when the fumble comes up meaning he drops the amulet that is controlling the demon or what have you.
