I am developing some plugins and would like to have full control of my
target platform. Therefore I was considering to download an eclipse
installation and point to that installation as my target platform.

This way I will not experience that target plugins gets updated unless I
manually choose to update them.

But is this approach recommended (pros/cons) and are there any guides to
setting up an "offline" target platform in a more general context.

Further I would like to put this offline installation on a remote server but
is that supported?

You could use something like the b3 aggregator to create a repository
consisting of only the things you like to have in your tp - place the
aggregated/filtered and mirrored (if you like) repository on a server.

Then provision tp instances from this repository.
