The 10,000 mile outline of what you need to do is:
1. Use the ReportViewer control
2. Store the Report Manager (WebService) URL of your reporting server somewhere
3. Store the path of the report on the Report Server in a table (alternatively, in case of pick & choose reports, you can iterate through the report directory and file list from the web-service)
3. When you want to display a report, build the Report URL (Webservice URL + Report Path) and invoke the Report Viewer control

I will try to see if I can get a tutorial for this somewhere.

Yes, ReportViewer controls are available for on-premise (i.e. Windows app) too.
