What access to 2nd PC will be possible via LAN

I am connecting 2 PCs via crossover cable connecting via the ethernet ports. Primarily for gaming. One of the PCs has broadband access.

Will the 2nd PC be able to access the internet via the LAN?

Will the 2nd PC be able to print through a printer connected to the other PC?

What other access to programs/files can I expect?

Appreciate that wireless/router a better option but strapped for cash at present.

Thanks

access internet = yes
printer sharing = yes
access to files is whatever you share.

It will work the same as any network does.
