Default Virtual pc

I've recently been playing around with the idea of networking my laptop to my desktop so that its basically a thin client for the desktop. Problem is I've been able to find precious little information on these kind of processes and any information I do gather ends up contradicting itself.
My questions are:

Can I make my laptop have two boot modes, one that would run the laptop like a normal laptop and one that would run as a client for my desktop?

If that is possible to make it so that the laptop uses wireless to hook into the desktop?

Also would I need to make my desktop into a server or could I run a virtual server application in order to do these things?

My main reason for these questions is that I need a laptop for schoolwork and projects, but I would like to not be stuck at the desk at home if I decide to play games or just use a more powerful machine. I do realize that I'm a beginner in the wide world of networking, but I'm always curious on obscure applications of concepts.
