If we can upload existing Excel files created on the client to the web server and bypass the Asp.Cells engine in doing so, are these files automatically stored as .xls files on the web server? Can we control through custom code where these files are stored on the web server? Could we also store them as blobs within Oracle? These files need to be associated with a parent record in Oracle. What method is recommended?

It will saved on the web server with your specified name.

Can we control through custom code where these files are stored on the web server?

Yes, you can. Please check the samples and quickstart tutorials in .NET Framework SDK. It provides sample code to upload a file.

Could we also store them as blobs within Oracle? These files need to be associated with a parent record in Oracle. What method is recommended?

Generally I think this is feasible. Some other users also store xls files in database.
