You can create an "Ad Hoc" wireless network in which the two "computers" connect directly with one another. Internet Connection Sharing can then be set up in a PC that is online, so as to provide internet access to the networked computer(s).

As Strawballs says - run the Network Wizard found in Control Panel aaand chose the appropriate options.

can a link to a psp be set up like that? or only other computers?

If it is wireless and will run a cd made from the main machine during the running of the wizard I don't see why not.
