Remote migration is another name for Exchange hybrid  migration, aka mailbox moves from on-prem Exchange servers to Office 365. Hybrid itself is a very broad topic, and you will have to do some reading to get yourself familiar with the concept. Start for example here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj200581(v=exchg.150).aspx

To compare the different migration methods, refer to this article: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj863291(v=exchg.150).aspx

as per my understanding remote migration is below

Migrate email from another email system

You can use the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) to migrate user email from Gmail, Exchange, and other email systems that support IMAP migration. When you migrate the user's email by using IMAP migration, only the items in the users' inbox or other mail folders are migrated. Contacts, calendar items, and tasks can't be migrated with IMAP, but they can be by a user.
IMAP migration also doesn't create mailboxes in Office 365. You'll have to create a mailbox for each user before you migrate their email.
