The answer to question 1 is no.  You can't use both ports at the same time.

The answer to question 2 is yes.  You will have to make up a special cable.  Swap wires 3 and 6 on one end.

When you build a cable, the wires normally go:

Pin 1: White/Orange
Pin 2: Orange/White
Pin 3: White/Green
Pin 4: Blue/White
Pin 5: White/Blue
Pin 6: Green/White
Pin 7: White/Brown
Pin 8: Brown/White

On one end of the cable you are trying to build to connect without a hub, swap the wires on 3 and 6.

If you have 3 computers you're trying to network, you really need a hub.  A 4 port hub for 10bT is really quite inexpensive.  Is that not an option?
