              Yes, htdocs is a common name for the web root. Normally you upload the style's image folder to your forum directory.

              The XML is uploaded in that section of your Admin CP. Click the Browse button to find the XML file on your computer. Then click Import.

                  You can select the option to import it as a new style such that it will not overwrite any existing styles. If both styles are active then users can choose either one.

                        He is referring to the product manager:

                        Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Product Manager -> [Add/Import Product]

                            Make sure you uploaded the images where it is looking for them. Right click one of the broken images to see the location being called.
