Is it possible to use a T.V. as a monitor?  If so, how, and is it possible to use both the T.V. and a monitor?  My last question is, is there a way to hook it up wirelessly?

Yes, you can use a TV as a monitor but its REALLY ugly. To do it you need a video card with S-Video or Composite video out, OR a firewire bridge that has S-Vid or Composite. To use both you need an OS that supports it. You may have a hard time getting Windows to do it. As for doing it wirelessly, good luck. Video requires alot of bandwidth and even on my 100base-T ethernet network displaying another computers screen is a bit choppy. As of yet we dont have 100mbps wireless.
