Any Drill should do the trick although I'm not too sure how this relates to Networking.  If you are dropping CAT5 cabling, make sure you get plenum rated wiring to be compliant with fire codes.

You need to use a hole saw. A good one is ususally 2 pieces. A one piece will work if it is just a one time use.
Put masking tape over the wood where you are going to drill to reduce the splintering.

Where it comes through the ceiling you might want to place it in a concealed white plastic track until reaches it's destination. There are dozens of manufacturers, but Hubbell is one of the larger:

Yes they do, at least here in Canada. It is likely a different make.

Yep, I actually work there part time (in Minnesota, USA). Your home depot should as well.

You can do it, we can help! (Can you hear the home depot theme song?)
