Vim has all of that.  I gather emacs does too.  If you're dead-set on
a graphical environment, setting up a vps (linode, or aws, or
whatever) and using vnc is a solution.  X forwarding is another

But, honestly, in any solution that has you logging in remotely
requires your gaining at least minimal knowledge of system
administration and security.
