once your S3 storage (basket) is created, you may obtain its URL from its Proprrties. use the URL in your EC2 instance to access the data.

To do this you need to set up a WebDav server or software that mounts S3 as a drive.
Two I know of on Windows:
CloudBerry Drive http://www.cloudberrylab.com
WebDrive http://webdrive.com
For Linux you can try https://github.com/s3fs-fuse/s3fs-fuse

You don't need to, it's just easier than CLI, powershell, GET or wget.
