I need either a shell script or a c-program that will download the file/var/adm/wtmpx from one local UNIX host and
transfer it to another host, preferably with clear explanations of what is going on. The code will be much
appreciated.

wtmpx is in binary format and, therefore, may not be portable between several UNIXs. If you have access to your UNIX host try:

rsh host last | more

When using rsh host last|more I get permission denied.
When I do rlogin or rsh host, I'm asked for a password and then am logged in. Is  there a shell script I can write that will
run without any interaction from the keyboard, that will use rsh?

No!
Your administrator must grant you access. This depends on the flavour of your UNIX, for example you must have an entry in ~/.rhosts or /etc/rhosts or /etc/netgroups or /etc/hosts.{access,deny}
