I have a unique piece of hardware plugged into a Windows machine. I want to access this piece of hardware (and associated software) from two machines at once. One of these machines will obviously be the machine that the hardware is in, but I would like to be able to connect to it with a remote machine, and access the hardware/software simultaneously. (ie: Original machine with the hardware running normally. Second machine, logged onto and running programs on the first machine) Is this possible, and if so, how could I accomplish it?

Check into Remote Desktop/Terminal Services.

Off hand those are the only things I can think of that would allow emulation of the desktop. I'm sure you can pick up a 3rd party software out there to allow desktop emulation.

Yes, you could do that. It's called "networking" the two computers. Take a look around Tom's, there's plenty on network computing.
