I seem to have made a mistake :/  I meant that I do not have a CD-ROM player. The cd came with the windows 7 fine.

Unless your PC already has some other operating system on it (necessary to get online and d/l Windows 7 to some other secondary drive), you'll need to buy and install an optical drive. Fortunately they are relatively inexpensive; $20-$22 online.

Could it be done by using a USB to some sort just as Ubuntu does it? Or would I be able to install Ubuntu and use it to install Windows?

Yes, assuming you have an .iso from the proper version of Windows and a 4GB or larger flash stick, it will be no issue.
Simply follow This Guide and use Microsoft's Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool to make a bootable flash stick.
Then just boot from the USB stick and install like normal.
