a "crossover" cable can connect to PC's together without a router or switch. You enable "internet sharing" on the connected computer and transfer the software to the 2nd computer. this web site has full instructions:

Yes, just enable Internet connection sharing on that PC with Internet connection, after that set up ad-hoc wireless connection with other PC to share Internet. Take a look on this Internet Connection Sharing tutorial, hope able to help you.
