This is probably gonna make me seem stupid, and I can't find an answer in the forums that satisfies this question. I haven't played this game since 2009, and I had Internet then. (I'm using a Chromebook right now.) Can I use the map editor package to play this offline?

You can play offline with the editor package, but you won't have access to most of the maps in the game. You'll have access to a handful of early-game maps only.

I think the answer is yes and no.

Technically you can run a server and then connect a client to it locally and play the game. As it's your own server you can make yourself a SA/GM/MM/VOL etc if you wish. However there are a few caveats. Firstly not all the maps are available that I believe was to prevent players using mapmaker package to find special drops etc but may well have a knock on effect on quests. Secondly as it is a separate server all progress is limited to your personal server and won't apply online.
Doesn't matter, you'd die anyway. ;D Shroud's a hacker. After many hours of deep thought I have came to that conclusion.

Thats fine, once I get Internet, I can join the rest of the players with a fresh character. Is there any sort of guide to using the map editor to play?

I've just looked at it and it's somewhat outdated:

Here's a more up-to-date version (I'll update wiki in a bit):

1. In server/install/win32 run the install.bat file (assuming Windows, otherwise use the linux folder)
2. Run w32_start_server.bat from the base mapmaker folder (on linux you'll need to compile it yourself)
3. Right-click your client shortcut and click "properties". In the "Target" field, add a space and --local to the end. (For Linux, just run the client with --local switch)

From there you can launch the client and there should be a "LOCAL" server option for you to connect to. Create a new account and character and start playing. :)
