This sounds like *exactly* what tramp does, except for the part at the
end where you have a partial copy retained locally. You don't need to
install/load/configure tramp, it should work transparently if you find a
file with a remote server specification in the filename, ie
/address@hidden:path/to.file. With proper ssh configuration, it becomes very
simple.

To be honest, keeping a partial local copy sounds like a bad idea.
Either edit remotely with tramp, or edit locally with git or something
similar. But maybe someone can tell you how to do the partial
solution...
