First, make sure there is a little cable running from your modem to your mobo/sound card. (which ever one you use) this is your sound cable, and is what allows you to use your comp as a phone. Next, make sure you have working speakers and a micropohe attached to your comp. Now get a program to use you comp as a phone. (I don't know any, buy google does.)

No, with Skype out you may call any number, including land lines.
