    I'm not sure what it is you want to do.

    Do you want:

    1) Download your WP Blogs from a host? If so just use CPanel and create a backup then download FTP to your local PC.

    2) If you want to run the downloaded WP Blog you'll need a webserver running on your local machine running PHP and MySql. If you have a windows machine you could install Wampserver http://www.wampserver.com/en/ which installs Apache, Mysql and PHP on your PC. Then restore with your backup from (1)

    Why do you need to download anything to install plugins when you can do so from within Wordpress and if you have problems from within wordpress you can download plugins and then send to plugins folder using FTP.Not quite sure what it is you are trying to do,if you explain better there are many people here who can help you.
