Flash will not edit html or xml.
The swf file is not editable at all, it is the compiled version of the .fla.. the swf should just play like anyother "movie" file if you open it... if you open the fla it should open in Flash.
.fla is the only one you can edit with Flash.

To start, open the fla file into Flash and play around with what you see.
Without knowing what you are trying to do it is hard to help you do it. What do you want to edit? Text? Images? Both?
I would suggest checking out some Flash tutorials because every time you need to make a change you need to be able to do it yourself.
There are a lot of them for free if you search.
Flash is complicated software and it isn't something so easy as going to a menu like
--> File --> Edit --> Edit Next Page
I think you are lacking a basic understanding of what a webpage is and what an FLA is. You can't just click in Flash to edit stuff. There are time lines, key frames, layers, tweens and so many other things to look at before one can answer the question.. "How do I edit my Nav in flash?"
How many frames in the time line? How many Key frames? There are a million follow up questions to help you get an answer. If you don't know what a timeline is or key frames, layers and tweens, then you are going to have extreme difficulty following even simple tutorial instructions.
I suggest if you are going to manage your site in Flash that you pick up some books or and go through some super basic tutorials otherwise you are going to find this to be very hard to do. There is just too much involved.
