How to use desktop computer as a two-line phone?

I currently have high quality essentially free-VOIP.  I work out of my home.  I would like to be able to use my computer as a two line phone; where I can dial from my Outlook addressbook and wear a usb headset for the calls (or use the webcam mike if that is better.)   I already have various computer to computer services, and since I have a home business line that works well, I'm not really looking to add a Skype or other pay service -- plus I'd like to get the phone off my desk.  The VOIP provider is Ooma.   As a fall-back alternative is there a 2-line phone that has a USB connection so that it can be dialed from a PC (and maybe use a USB headset?)

The link only addresses how to dial from Outlook.  That's not the problem.  The problem is dialing from Outllook AND using the computer as a two line phone.  I haven't even been able to get a modem connection to work over the Ooma line.  Once that is done, there is still the issue of having some sort of telephony interface with the headset.  I'm sorry, the above doesn't quite address this issue.

There were no other answers even though the question was open for a long time.  I was looking to close out the question unless there is a way to bump it up so that people address it.
