I have a document that was saved as a InDesign 7.2.

Now I have version 6.0, and I was wondering if there is any way to open it or convert it online to a 7.2 document and/or PDF.

InDesign's backwards compatible format is .IDML. Save out as that to open in older versions - I think it was introduced in CS5, and will open in CS4.

You can download a free demo of the latest InDesign version from Adobe Creative Cloud and use it to convert your document. Unfortunately, there are no proven alternatives to InDesign for .indd files.
