I haven't patched Solaris for a while and now I need to learn to do patching.
I used to did patchadd command to run one by one. I think better to do
live upgrade. Can I download it to local box, and then we can do live upgrade?

Yes, you can do "live patching" similar to this:

You need a spare internal disk with the same size of your OS disk.

PS move from sun to oracle added paywalls and broke certificate chains, you might need to install latest patchset (10u10) using DVD as a patch source for that.
