I just figured that with an online bank or a bank with online capabilities, he would be able to transfer funds between the two accounts easily.

This is almost certainly not true. Even transfers between two different online banks in the US may not be easy, if neither bank offers such features. Also, within the US, such transfers usually use the national automated check clearing systems, for which there is no international equivalent. You will be very disappointed if you expect to be able to transfer funds between Argentina and the US at the click of a mouse. Mailing checks or costly wire transfers are still the norm for international transactions (though I suppose ATMs might be usable for withdrawals, but not deposits).
