Yes. The Time Capsule is a normal router and PC compatible for basic internet access.
The time machine features are (obviously) not available to a PC, however, you can share a USB device (drive, printer) to PCs on the network by connecting the USB device to the Time Capsule.

Yes but why would you want to? If you are not going to use the wireless functionality and you can't use the Time Machine backup with a PC you could get a USB external HDD for about 1/3 the price to do the same thing.
