T&L stands for "Transform & Lighting" T&L is a video technology that takes all the 3D information that used to be handled by the computer processor and gives it to the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit). This enables for a more complex 3D environment by adding a higher polygon count and improving the lighting and at the same time it allows the computer processor to handle other tasks.

The person posting the question is probably referring to "hardware".

Software is the programs and other operating information used by a computer. It is stored on the hardware of the computer - generally by magnetic means.

Can you fake your video card?

This depends on what you mean by faking the video card. You cannot fake one if you have none installed at all. However, you can trick software into thinking you have a video card other than what is installed. When monochrome displays were common, some software required CGA monitors. Some monochrome adapters were Hercules compatible, but the software was not. However, there were programs you could install to allow CGA compatible software to run on Hecules monochrome compatible hardware. Another thing that can be done in some cases is to fake a different model of video card. That often requires editing the ROM instructions in the video card and flashing them back to the card. This is risky and may also violate license agreements in some cases, but performance can sometimes be gained this way.
