The institutional Stata you run remotely should be set up to be able
to see extra ado files on your computer. If not, the -adopath- command
should be the way to fix that. So whatever user-written stuff you have
installed should be OK.

But I think comment on how well it will work depends on knowing more
precisely how it would work. It depends on whether the "internet
connection" would be equivalent to just being a computer with a
connection to a local server. If so, "very well" is a likely answer.
Customisation would be matter of running your own do-file once you
have opened up Stata. On this, it is better to open up a dialogue with
Stata tech-support or to get your contact person to do that.

On why STATA is really Stata, see several other very recent posts.
