I believe this printer does not have Wireless connectivity? Does it?

I could not find on below link whether it has any Wireless Adapter. Specification says it only have Ethernet available.

If you could connect your Printer with Network Cable through Router, you can easily connect the same over IP address what is achieved by the Printer. I would suggest assign a Static IP so that router wont change it when ever system/printer is restarted. You can install the printer over TCP IP on your Laptop/Desktop. Question about printing on iPad below link will help you to do so. The application you can use to perform printing over Wireless Network. This software enable you connect to Specially Brother Printers :)

Yes, you must install the driver. I have numerous Brother MFC devices and my strong suggestion is that you download and install what Brother calls the Full Driver & Software Package. Here's the link for your MFC-9125CN:

Be careful to select the right download for your OS. Regards, Joe

Unfortunately these Apps may only work with their own photo or browser programs.  They can be accessed from within other Apps that have the "Open In" option, but I do not think that is available in Mail.  You might look for other printing Apps such as Print n Share or PrintCentral, that also include an internal mail program.
 
Another alternative is to run a program on your computer that shares its printer as AirPrint over WiFi.  <Printopia for Macintosh> and <FingerPrint for PC and Mac> can do that, and are reported to work well.  Your computer must be on and awake any time you want to print.
