To create any iOS app, you will need to learn Objective C and the Cocoa Touch framework. The best place to get started is http://developer.apple.com/devcenter/ios/, which has plenty of documentation, sample code, and articles on developing for iOS.

If you're planning on doing a native app, then yes, Objective C and the Cocoa Touch framework are the way to go. If you meant a web app, then Apple also has guides on preparing your web content for Safari. Here's a good place to get started:

http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/AppleApplications/Reference/SafariWebContent/Introduction/Introduction.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40002079-SW1

Particularly, the Configuring Web Applications section has information on making the web page feel more like a native app. As for the specific requirements, I'm unable to view the website you gave in your original post, as my security software has flagged it as suspect, but here are some ideas:
A. This would probably be done most easily through a CSS stylesheet in a web app. Your partners could just change the colors of different elements without modifying the HTML
B. On iOS, the web app has access to the device's GPS, so you could query it for current location
C. This would be handled on your backend. I suppose how you do this is up to you, but I think a lot of devs use jQuery to connect to a database.
