Yes, you either use Terminal Services or Citrix.
Install the application using the installation method for whichever solution you use, then use the TS Client to conncet and use the published application.

Both will need a license. TS has a trial license of 90 or 120 days.

There will be plenty of how to's on the web if you aren't farmiliar with TS or Citrix setups.

Here is a link on how to configure Office in TS which may also help:

You need to use Terminal Services, but this gives you upto 3 sessions only, one local, 2 terminals.

Not in application mode it doesn't, remote admin mode you are limited to two (maybe 3 if console is now included) but you wouldn't use this for this setup.

Hopefully you will find it usable with the trial license.
