    Ok, I have a Wordpress theme, so I downloaded Wordpress. I am totally lost. How do I edit the site? If it's going to be difficult (as in more difficult than iWeb or Webs.com, etc.) how can I edit the theme? Will a Wordpress.com site be able to use it? Please be patient, I'm totally lost here.

    You don't have to download Wordpress to use a Wordpress.com account. You download it for self-hosting.

    You can't install themes on a wordpress.com account. You would need to host it with a outside host. A few free ones I would recommend are namepad.net bryansoft.com and x-ind.com. (none are mine)

    I know, but I downloaded a Wordpress theme, then saw how confusing Wordpress is. My real question is will the theme work on Wordpress.com

    No.

    The only themes available on wordpress.com are the ones that are shown in the theme selector.
