If I'm connected via gotoassist, can i run wireshark on that separate computer? Or do i have to do an install on every pc I'd like to scan?

Wireshark can generally capture only on the host it's running on, particularly when using remote desktop packages.

Options such as rpcap or ssh do allow remote capture, one example is using pipes, see the wiki page here.
