    Maybe I'm a bit slow: But are you asking how you upload the files, or how you install themes?

    It will be much easier with an FTP app (eg Transmit); And you'll need to change the persmissions on certain files when you upload Wordpress to your server space (I forget which ones atm but just remember it being in there somewhere).

    Installing themes is easy - once you have Wordpress installed you just upload the theme to the wp-themes directory and it load in the Admin panel automatically so you just go in and select the theme you want to use.

    I think what you need is to hire someone to do it real cheap...

    How to Install Wordpress

    Wordpress Forums

    How to upload the package to the server may differ based on the host. If you're using an FTP app, then you'll need to find the FTP authentication and from there you log in and start uploading files.

    It's easy to do, it takes a lot of steps to finally get it up and going.

    Looks like you got the banner working? I would upload that image instead of linking it to your photobukcket.
