Would like to know about company "stock repurchases". Who's stock?

Generally from those selling on the market.

Can a company repuchase someones stock if they so desire?

I'm not sure how one could foreably arrange this, though in some cases a company may ask a shareholder to sell their shares in the case of someone having very few shares, e.g. under 100, and the company wants to lower that number which I saw years ago with a couple of companies I used to own.

Sometime I'm looking up a companie's info on a web site which says nothing about company debt. Where can I find that info without going into research mode?

Huh? Isn't that like wanting someone to show you some beautiful women but you don't want to look at them? You are going to have get into the balance sheets of the company or a site that takes that information and displays it on their site, e.g. Yahoo! Finance, Morningstar, MSN Money to name a few of the sites that have this stuff. As you go looking it up, this to me is research, sorry.
