The PlayStation 2 software does not support un-routered connections to a computer. If you have a USB ADSL modem, and wish to connect the PlayStation 2 to your PC to use its internet connection, look for proxy creation software. It can channel the connection between the PC and PS2 to the WWW, fooling the PS2 it is connected to a router or LAN-compatible ADSL modem.

I'm not sure what you mean by hook.

You certainly can not run your PS3 using the computer as a controller or otherwise play PS3 games with your PC somehow using the PS3 as a part of the PC.
