I'm told that this document has the picture cells (large empty ones) unlocked and the rest of the form is locked. Can you explain how to used cell locking and unlocking in word? Please be as comprehensive in the answer as possible and explain how it would be done in both 2003 and 2007 word versions.

Your document has 21 Sections. Some of them are protected for forms. There are some single-celled tables in the unprotected sections. The single cells are empty.

If you want to change which sections are protected for forms, select Protect Document from the Tools menu. The Protect Document Task pane will open. It has a blue link labelled Select sections... This opens the Section protection dialogue.

I followed your directions and see the section table listing all the sections. How do I know what cell/table is related to what "section"?

If you select the cell, the section number is shown in the status bar. If protection is in effect, you won't be able to select anything (except form fields) in a protected section, so you might need to unprotect the document while you are testing. It might also help to show formatting marks (toggled with the ¶ button). You will then be able to see the section breaks.

My status bar says "pages: 2 of 11" "Words: 135" and that's it. I'm editing this 2003 compatible doc in word 2007. Is is shown somewhere else in my version?

Sorry. I don't have 2007.
However, it seems that the status bar display can be modified in 2007:
