You have 3 kinds of the switch.
External (with access to the internal network, the host computer, and internet)
Internal: With access to the host computer and internal network)
and Private that has access to the Internal network and DOES not to the HOST.

If you can transfer files like if you were in a regular VM, by sharing a folder or using \\<servername>\C$ (to go to the C drive with administrative privileges) all is true, with the internal network you have access to the VM from the Host computer and from the Network itself. so you can copy and paste your files from any device on the internal network by using the hostname or IP of the computer an share a folder with the required privileges.

Like the above it is possible, just setup an IP address and subnet that they can talk to each other and should be able to access locally. Like a modem/router without internet..

Create a VHD, copy the files to the VHD, attach the VHD to the VM.

Here's one more method that's similar to Lee's:

Copy the files to a folder on the host, use an ISO creator utility (there are plenty of free ones out there) to create an ISO image from that folder, then point the VM's DVD drive to that ISO. In the VM, open the DVD drive and copy the files to wherever you want them.
