Can I use DCC for multiplayer games

If I make a "Parallel Port Direct Cable Connection" between 2 XP computers, will I be able to play multiplayer on games like Age of Empires??

Yes but only like LAN games i think to play on line with both you would need ICS and I'm not sure you can with Parallel connections.

Quicker and easier way is to use network cards as you will get better transfer rate's...

Network cards = £10 for both and a £5 for the cross over cable!

Then just plug in and install and off you go...
