If I have 5,000 text files (averaging about 100 lines of text -> so not very big), and I want to have an interface where I have a search functionality by name of the file, and when I find the one I want it loads the content into a textbox. I could save it in IsolatedStorage too.

Do you already have middleware (files) on the server with functions you can call? It almost seems like you would have to have something on the server side to query the files there, or we thinking more along the lines of ftp?

You will most likely need a server-side application (e.g. web service). REST services would give you the type of functionality you're looking for. From your WP app you would simply use a WebClient to call the services and pull the data down.
