What stops you from doing this? Or do you want to do any of those steps programmatically? In that case we'd need to know what kind of application this is - web, desktop, ... ?

So the file is on the web server, but you want to edit it on the client, and then save it back to the server? Either provide a liink on the web site where the user can download the file, and an HTTP upload after she's done editing, or look into hosting the file in a WebDAV repository on your server. Some servlet containers (like Tomcat) even have a WebDAV capability built in, or easily enabled.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
