I already gave the answer to question 5 in your first post: "Sure, just
install xubuntu-desktop from the Synaptic package manager." But now I
see that ...

In this case, read this discussion:

You can get all package here: http://packages.ubuntu.com
For examples, mc for Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty):

To download the deb file, just click on the link for your architecture,
for example "i386" at the bottom of the page.

Note that downloading individual files to install them on the machine
without an internet connection gets very complicated soon, due to
dependencies. So, for more complex installations (such as xfce4), the
method described on ubuntuforums.org is much better. But for a simple
program like mc, downloading from packages.ubuntu.com is viable.

Good luck :)
