There are two flavors of wordpress. Here at wordpress.com we have a controlled environment where we all use a version of wordpress hosted here. We have access to over 200 themes which we activate from their list. We can edit our theme stylesheets but cannot access the other wordpress files. The themes purchased from places like themeforest cannot be used here at wordpress.com.
WordPress.org is the support site for the more open version of wordpress. It is the support site for the software which you acquire and host on an external web host of your choice. Using that software, you can use the themes like the downloadable ones like themeforest.
