    I have 3 questions:

    1. Am I able to download plugins on my free version on WordPress?

    2. Is spam shield a free plugin that I have access to somewhere?

    3. How can I switch to the old WordPress dashboard – the one with the black left navigation bar? I don’t see the WP Admin tab on my current blue left navigation bar.

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

    No.

    You are confusing wordpress.COM hosted sites and wordpress.ORG self hosted sites. WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    There is no FTP access to wordpress.com blogs and no blogger installed plugin capability. Those exist only on wordpress.ORG software installs and no upgrade alters that reality.

    No blogger installed plugins http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    If you require plugins see: Moving to Self-Hosted WordPress http://move.wordpress.com

    If you decide to remain having your site hosted here by wordpress.COM read on.

    You must be logged in under the exact same username that registered the site to be able to access the site. The Admin login link to the dashboard for every blog hosted by wordpress.COM is:

    http://NAME_OF_BLOG.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    *Replace NAME_OF_BLOG in that URL with the actual name of your blog.

    I recommend bookmarking that link or memorizing it.
