this should get you on your way.

the com object will only open docs that exists on the server, and is only available for windows.

Plus it won't give you the full functionality that you would want.

I guess you mean first edit the document and then upload it.
Then you simply need to provide a form with a input filed like:

  <input type=file value="">
how would that make any sense.

haven't you seen google doc?
