I plan on buying an Xbee so that i can control my Arduino using a wireless network,is this possible because when i googled i see people using two Xbee's to communicate with the Arduino and for me I dont hope to buy all those two XBee's.I am sorry if this sounds like a stupid question,I dont know so I am asking.

The XBee is a transceiver - a transmitter and a receiver in one unit. It needs to have something to talk to. One XBee by itself is pretty much useless.
