You need a router to feed more than one computer, If you get a router with wireless capability and the bedroom is not too far away you may me able to access without running a cable to the bedroom.

The bedroom is on the other side of the wall. Being that I am with Hughesnet and have limited daily usage, do I have to be concerned that neighbors may also be able to access the signal and consume my daily allowance?

I wouldn't be too concerned about neighbours. If you were to leave the wireless router at its default setting then it might be a problem. All wireless routers for home use these days have security facilities and encryption built in along with a thing called MAC filtering which only allows computers designated by you to connect.

You need to read the instructions for the router you buy and if you are unsure, get someone who knows about these things to give you a hand, While these measure are not absolute, nothing ever is where computer security is concerned, it will keep out all but the most determined and knowledgeable hackers.
