Lenovo Yoga 2

Is it possible to connect a tab (ex Lenovo Yoga 2) to a domain network with a USB to RJ45 converter?

I would think so, provided that Windows Professional was installed on the device.

Other people seem to have done it:

This type of adapter seems to be very modestly priced, so if it didn't work you're unlikely to be consigned to the workhouse...

How do i load software onto Yoga 2 like the Microsoft Office suite?Does it mean i have to create images and load onto network or usb external or flash drive?

I'd connect an external USB optical drive and run the installation from the CD/DVD. If you don't have or don't want to buy such a device then just copy the files from the installation media to a USB drive and install from that.
Microsoft also offers installation of its Office 2013 products via download; you just buy a product key card and go to the URL printed in the sleeve to get things moving. Other vendors have similar approaches to disseminating their products; indeed, some don't offer their software on a disc at all, or will do so only on payment of an exorbitant fee.
