not sure if u can connect laptop to laptop but if either one of u have a wireless network u could share things that way if u both conenct to it.

Alternatively could invest in a cheap external harddrive then would never have any back up problems again! and can save anything precious to them like photos etc

Yes an Ethernet cable will work you would need to either go through a router though or buy a crossover ethernet cable if you want to connect the two directly without a router
