What kind of Video Card do you have. You may be able to get a VGA to HDMI converter.

The cord will be cheap but if you want the audio too then you may have to pay more.

The TV came with a manual didn't it? To connect more than one device to a single internet connection you need an additional device to share the internet, provide NAT and DHCP.

It's called a router and you put it between the modem and the user devices.
