I want to connect two Computers in a network. The rooms are connected with an unused telephone cable and I have no chance to install a network cable. Can I use the telephone cable and connect it to standard 10MBit twisted pair cables?

No, telephone cables and twisted pair have different connectors. They look similar but they are not.

I know that, I will make the connectors myself. But can I use the existing cables (resistance, shielding etc...) ?

I've learned during my course that the cables should be the same.
"One of the advantages of twisted pair is that the cabling is already available in most building for telephone lines"

You almost always want to use Catagory 5 or 7 for your twisted pair data network. You can use Catagory 3, that is usuly used for telephone. You still need to get the cable to your patch panel to make your data connection.You won't be able to use high speed for your data using cat 3. The cable should not need to be shielded but the resistance part you won't like if you are going to run at high speeds. You could run your cables on the surface, down the wall in wire mold or use the telephone cable as a pull string if not accessable.
