PC Phone Modem Software
I have both a landline and a mobile and would like to make calls through the PC. How do I connect the phoneline into the PC (do I need an ethernet card?)

You can't use your Ethernet card. It might look like a similar connector, but is a completely different system.
You need something like one of these devices to connect a phone to your PC, then you can use services like skype to connect to phones: http://www.von-phone.com/skype-adapters.php
If this is for a larger system with several phones, take a look at Asterisk: http://www.asterisk.org/
