How do I get a .doc or .rtf document from gmail to Pages on my iPad?

I'm stuck. I have a document, all text, less than 1 megabyte (about 400 pages equivalent) that I want to edit on my iPad. I can e-mail it to myself (gmail), and my iPad offers to open it in Evernote or iCab Mobile or Dropbox or DocsToGo, but those apps will only let me see the document, not edit it.
How can I get it into Pages??
(I also have a feeling that in the past I was able to transfer .mp3's from Dropbox to -- somewhere else -- (?) but I can't remember now.)
I really don't want to buy another app! Is there anything free out there that will let me transfer into Pages? or some other way of transferring documents from my PC to my iPad? (I"ve been too timid to use the iCloud -- should I be doing that? I set it up, I think, but I can't figure out how to *use* it).
