Only Microsoft game I have on steam is Section 8. Does this mean that people that already have the game will not be able to play online?

The Marketplace is going to go away, however the client for games will still be running. I doubt that anyone actually used the marketplace except for DLC, and those DLC will still be available through the game itself.
