    Why Wampserver? There are numerous free hosts that allow a wordpress install that you can practice on.

    For your question, though... can you access it by FTP?

    It was mentioned via lynda.com along with Bitnami.
    i opted for this option wampserver to test on my own server before hosting

    , as mentioned im only a newbie to wordpress.org so trying to learn as much as possiable then going onto creating my own custom themplates eventually.

    simply unzip the the themes and place them in your wamp servers , www/wordpress(or whatever you have named your wp install as)/wp-content/themes folder and you'll be good to go .

    If you need any help feel free to PM me.
