    No need to enter orbital elements manually. Use the solar system editor:

    Config Dialog (F2)
    -> plugins tab
    -> Select "Solar system editor".

    If the "load at startup is not checked, check it and re-start Stellarium, and
    navigate back to the Plugins tab.
    -> configure button
    -> Solar system tab
    -> click button "import elements in MPC format"
    -> online search tab
    -> Enter "Halley" in the search box, click the search button
    -> Check the object in the list of found objects
    -> click the "Add Object" button.

    Voila.

    s-orion,

    The search feature is an autocompleter, not a full-text search. For your data,
    you need to search for "P/Halley".

    Matthew,

    Your instructions are missing a vital part. They will import the asteroid
    named Halley, not the comet. For the comet, you need to prefix the search with
    "C/" or "P/" - "C/Halley" should do.
