Sounds like you should be looking at WIndows Terminal Services and.or Citrix to provide your remote connection to the application.  If it's only one remote user you can look at the single user option - GoToMyPc but it depends on what connection you can make to the headoffice machine.

XP Professional also allows a single remote connection. You can then open a remote connection and work with the db as if you were sitting in front of the computer. The ONLY real issue you'd have would be printing, but if you're using standard HP-compliant printers you shouldn't have any real troubles.

As to synchronizing - that can be a very difficult thing to do, depending on what, exactly, you are referring to. 2007 doesn't support replication, so you would have to build logic to do this, and that can be very difficult and time consuming. I've built a replication routine before, and I'd bet I had over 100 hours in it. There are a myriad of issues to consider, including child records from different sources, lookups from different sources, etc etc ...
