Did you read the readmes in the zip files?
Or do you mean you can't unpack the zip files. You need winzip from http://www.winzip.com for that.

Fresh Installation
Copy all Files from the Directory phpBB2 in the Package to a directory on your webserver, for example /phpBB2/
Run the Installer http://my.forums.com/phpBB2/install/install.php (replace my.forums.com/phpBB2/ with the path to your forum !)
Enter all Data and finish installation.
Delete or rename the directory /install.
Change Permissions for the Directorys /files, /cache, album_mod/upload, album_mod/upload/cache, images/avatars, /pafiledb/cache, /pafiledb/cache/templates and pafiledb/uploads CHMOD to 777
Change Permissions for the files includes/def_icons.php, def_themes.php, def_tree.php and def_words.php CHMOD to 666
Use the new Forum ;)

They are instructions to install the forum.
Your forum is already installed.

Sorry i didnt read all of your post.
Do you have access to your forum files to edit them?
If you dont then you are unable to install any modifications.

Theres nothing you can do.
Unless your host provides you with a control panel to access the files to edit them there is no way of installing mods.

While the installation, what should i fill with these
Your Database Name:

Database Password:

Have a guess :)

You should have set up a database. You need to tell it what you called it and what username and password it needs to access it.
