CIFS is the native file sharing protocol that Windows uses.  Just right click a folder and select the Sharing option.  You will also want to adjust your Windows firewall to allow for file sharing.  If this is to be a file server, you will want to add the File Server Role as well.

Yes, you can add the file services role.  Then you can add and manage shares through the Share and Storage Management MMC.
