    Connecting to another computer is easy but if u want to share internet thats entirly diffrent thing, u must have router and network stuff but if u just want to transfer file u can just do it with windows builtin App all u must do it to connect both pc's with a USB cable and transfer your file.

    To connect a third you're gonna need to buy a router.

    SP2 for XP includes a wireless network wizard, you can try that.

    yes you can share what ever you like with the added bonus of nat acting as a natural firewall so your shared folders are protected from the big bad internet.
