I want to network 2 computers together and have been told that you can get something that plugs into a USB port.

Anyone know what this is and how it works?

You can get a USB cable with a "crossover" unit in the middle - do a search on ebuyer or the likes and you will find one.

A better option to my mind is to get a couple of network cards (NICs) and a network crossover cable - it will work easier, be easier to troubleshoot, and allow you to have a truer network. To the best of my knowledge, the USB option will not be easy to get working for internet sharing and the like.
