Do you mean you have an SQL database which you want to attach to an SQL instance on the SBS server? What exactly are you trying to do?

Well, you could install SQL Express and attach it to that instance you create provided that your requirements for the database are met by SQL Express. If not you'll need to either buy and install the version which does meet your requirements or use another server which has the version you require already installed.
 
"Can microsoft small business server R2 2008 allow people access to the database even if the internet connection is off?" - If the connecting device is on the local LAN then yes, if the device is connecting from the internet and there is no internet connection then no.

Small Business Server 2008 is basically just Server 2008 with Exchange and Sharepoint installed as a bundle running as a domain controller also.

To be honest, it sounds like you need the network administrator at this company to help set this database up for you with the connection strings you have defined in your website. If they are running SBS, it's likely that is their only domain controller running Exchange etc so best to tred carefully.
