I just need a download link to the SharePoint 2010 Snap-In for PowerShell 2.0. All of my searches find instructions on how to use it, but not download it.

There is no seperate download available. It comes as a part of SharePoint 2010 install.

And unfortunately you have to run scripts from one of the farm servers. – Scott Keck-Warren Feb 14 '11 at 14:52
or you can use PowerShell remoting to connect to one of the farm servers (WFE/APP) and run the SharePoint cmdlets. – ravikanth Feb 14 '11 at 15:22
Well, that's not ideal. It would be nice to have intellisense and other features when working on my desktop. – Jim Feb 14 '11 at 16:00
Yes, You can do that by using PowerShell remoting and importing the remote session into local session. Check this: – ravikanth Feb 14 '11 at 16:10
