First, you need to use WinZip 9+ [for Windows] and Stuffit Expander 10+ [for Mac] to extract the password protected sources_#########.zip archive.
You may also need the Adobe Photoshop application. It is used to edit .PSD source files, and it is necessary if you want to edit template design graphics and images.
To edit template source code files, you need some code editor like Adobe Dreamweaver, Notepad++, Sublime Text, etc.
To upload files to the hosting server you may need an FTP Manager like Total Commander, FileZilla, CuteFTP, etc.
As Magento Commerce is a PHP/MySQL based application, you need to prepare a hosting environment to run Magento.
If you have live hosting, please make sure it matches Magento requirements and is ready to be used for Magento store.
Otherwise, you can run Magento locally on your computer using the local server. To create a local hosting server please use the localhost applications such as WAMP, AppServ, MAMP etc. Any of those can be easily installed as any other program and used to run Magento.
