There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Those ports are for bitcoind or bitcoin-qt (the graphical wallet)  The one you would open is 8333. 8332 is for your miners to connect to locally.  But this usually only applies if you are solo-mining, which I doubt you are.  If all you want to do is set up a miner and point it at a mining pool you usually don't have to open any ports, unless your firewall is unusually restrictive.
