Installing new wordpress theme remotely

  1. I apologize if this seems like a silly question. However, my boss wants to switch his wordpress theme (via my insistence and assistance). However, he wants me to do it. Cool no problem, 2012 I can figure it out. I however have never run a wordpress site that wasn't a sitename.wordpress.com site.
    Here are my questions:
    1. Are all files installed via web or do I have to access the main frame computer?

    2. Can we edit a theme from two different computer? Meaning can I link up his wordpress database to my computer. Or is this unnecessary b/c it's all installed online?

    Basically, I am not 100% clear on how a wordpress site works. I know that on dreamweaver you can connect multiple computers, word offline, then upload to the site. But wordpress isn't my strong suit.

    HELP! Thanks so much for your time and sorry for the silly question.

    The blog I need help with is arabidpanda.wordpress.com.

  2. That is not the blog I need help with!!! I am not even using the site right now. The site we are switching over is ether11.com
