* With IWP, how can I get external people on different networks, locations and cities (for example) to connect to it.
* Is it possible to upload the database to the internet, or embed it in a webpage so people can enter in information online?

There are any number of companies that can host filemaker files to the web for you. Google "web hosting filemaker" and see what pops up. Your web hosted pages can be set up as editable forms in the web browser, so your users will be able to enter in information on line.
