It sounds like you want to make Emacs do what WebDrive FTP does.
I used it some years ago; before ange-ftp supported NSK.

The problem with Emacs doing it is that dired can't manage the
temporary
files it transfers back and forth unless the functions it hooks are
being called.  Word obviously won't be calling save-buffer so how would
your changes get written back...
