Are you asking for creating and altering the stored procedure on the remote server, or on the local server but using a linked server for some references?

The first needs to be done by dynamic SQL, as you have to be in the DB you create/alter objects (metadata, DDL). Something like
exec srv.db..sp_executesql N'create procedure ...'
