You have to activate the Developer Mode (see here)

Then go to the form and choose Edit FormView in the drop-down box.

I seem to be having an issue with the discription of a product. There seems to be a difference in what you write on the product form and what is displayed in the report (offer of invoice). Do you know the logic behind this ?

Reports and views are two totally different things in OpenERP. If you want to change a report you have to change the related RML.
