You connect a fax machine by following the instructions in the machine's user manual - every machine can potentially be different.

On the most basic level, a fax machine will require a power source (from the power area of the machine to a power socket) as well as a phone connection - usually this is an RJ 11 plug (the same as a regular phone plug) that connects from the phone line on the fax machine to the phone line in the wall.

generally no, you cannot use a fax machine as a modem to connect to the internet. However, there are some fax machines that can connect and send faxes strictly over the internet - essentially a fax machine can send to another fax machine that has the same capability through the internet over the ip address system. Look up T.38 and fax over ip for more information

To receive a fax in a fax machine: 1) connect the fax machine to a phone line 2) have the person sending the fax send the fax to the phone/fax line number 3) receive the fax with the fax machine. Most fax machines should be set to automatically receive, however some will need you to press the "ok" or green button when the fax line is ringing.

Typically no. But my company, FaxLogic, and one other that I'm aware of, Nextiva, make adapters that let you connect an analog fax machine to an Ethernet router.

If you connect your printer/fax combination machine to your phone line, yes, it would be your home number. Which means people that call your house will get the fax machine.
