If I have a third party applet, is there a way to run the java add-in on a server vs. requiring installation on the clients?  Trying to limit installations on the clients.

If I get your question correctly, the java applet will run on the client without the need for installation. The applet will be loaded by the browser.
The issue is what does the java applet do?

Yes, or is there a way to put a web server so people can access the app thru there without running anything extra?

I think we are going around the same issue.  In order for the people to access the java applet app, you have to have a web server that would publish the application.

The problem is that your question does not include any detail.  All I have to go on is on your choice of words to describe the application.  There is a difference if the 3rd party java component is a servlet rather than an applet.
Could you post the vendor and the 3rd party component?

If the item is a servlet, by its nature it runs on the server and will require a JAVA capable server i.e. tomcat, etc.

Right, how do you set this type of configuration up?  What this is, is an application that allows remote access, but requires that a java applet is installed on the client to use it.  How do I set up a web server so that the java side is run on the web server allowing the client to use this applet with the java add-in running on the web server?

The applet needs to run on the computer from which the remote access will be attempted and can not run on the web server.
