To set up a windows 7 homegroup you have to first set up a network (either ethernet or wireless connection). This article gives you excellent step by step instructions on how to do this - just click on the various steps in the article.

You can change the password - see this article

Bluetooth is an alternative to setting up a homegroup and you do not have to be connected to the internet to do this. You can share files between PC's, phones etc. if they are bluetooth enabled and if the sharing has been enabled.

This article gives you step by step instructions on how to set this up.

Hope this helps you.
