Atari 800/ 800XL DOS commands?

Here's my question. I am trying to figure out how to load certain
commands on an Atari 800xl. I guess I should say 'files'. I can load
BASIC files just fine with DOS loaded, I just exit to BASIC and
RUN"D1:game.bas" -- is there a way to do it directly from DOS 2.5, etc.,
without going back to BASIC?

And, my primary question.... if I see a machine language file in the DOS
directory such as ataridemo.obj or, how can I load these. I
have interpreted from some other sources that I need to reboot without
the basic cartridge in to run a machine language program, but how
'actually' do I do it? I don't see any of the menu options under DOS
that say "load machine language file: " or anything like that.

Please respond back if you have any information, as I am trying to
catalog all those Atari 800 (and everything) disks.

Thank you very much,
