This is the same as adding any new theme Suffusion is no different. In Appearance > Themes select Add New and then enter Suffusion in the search box it will then download and install for you and then you just activate it.

Suffusion shows as not available on WP.com. Do I have to use a hosted account like godaddy to use this theme or am I missing something on WP.com?

The themes you can used on .com are very limited and Suffusion is not one of them. You need a self hosted Wordpress instance.

My thought for using the free version was if for some reason the hosted version went a way for instance since I am getting elderly is there a way to save the post in that theme or do I need to post my blog on the free site in one theme and the same post in suffusion on my hosted site too. I really like suffusion. I guess a better question is if I use the hosted site is there a way to keep a local copy on my computer? I have a local copy of my website that was created in Microsoft Expression and each page is kept local as well as FTP uploaded to my GO-Daddy account. Just wanting to protect my post for my family. Or is there a similar theme to suffusion that will work on WP.com? Thanks for you help and time.
