If you want to use a package, you'll need a database yourself to store and run the package, unless you can store your packages on the American server. If you want to use 'client only' packages, you're tied to using Forms. I don't know any other tool to use client side Pl/sql. Oracle XE (Express Edition) is a free database. It has some limits though. It comes with SQLPlus as well, and you can download it on after you registered there (which is free as well)
