To network them you will need to set up a WAN. This stands for wide area network. A LAN (Local Area Network) networks computers that are within an easy distance of each other (i.e. in the same building) via wires or a wireless connection. This allows people to share the folders on their computers, share drives etc. A WAN does the same, only it connects via the Internet to computers further away. It still allows file and printer sharing. To do this both computers will need an active internet connection.

A desktop computer can be wireless with respect to its connection to a network and the internet. Desktop computers almost always use wires for power, however, rather than batteries.

No, this is not true at all. In a network, an almost unlimited number of computers can connect to another computer. The only limitations are the speed of the network connections, the speed of the computer, and the network architecture.

Yes, Linux does have a graphical user interface. Atually, it has dozens, if not hundreds, of desktop environments and window managers. They almost all invariably run on an X server. Keep in mind unlike in Windows, to Linux Xorg and whatever desktop or WM is run is basically just another program to the system, and it is entirely optional.

This depends on how to define 'workstation'. Almost all modern workstations are, literally, PCs. The only difference is function and location, as they are usually connected to the company's network. In which case the advantage is obvious.
