A torrent app acts as both a client (downloading) and a server (uploading), and so it needs to run on a computer with/near sufficient storage like a big hard disk.

It would be hopelessly inefficient to run a torrent app with remote storage, so I can't see how they could possibly work with Chromebooks. A better answer would be to have your torrent server at home, and be able to remotely control it from your Chromebook from wherever you are - you could use one of the RDP apps for this, or the WebUI for uTorrent.
