You'll probably have to use COM with Word, aka Word Interop; here's the reference. Note that this requires particular versions of Word to be installed on the client machines. I'm sure there are ways to determine and utilize the version at runtime, although I've never had the need to look into it.

You'll be able to load plain text pretty easily. If you want, you can get formatting information using the Interop libraries; however, it would be pretty near impossible to exactly match the formatting used by Word.
