Yes, it's called iptables. It's very difficult to manage iptables from the command line. I don't know if Ubuntu has a command line wizard for this, but if you install Gnome you can do it from there.

Yes. However, I strongly recommend to use SSH for it. It's encrypted and therefore much more secure than telnet.

Yes. But believe me: you need SSH!

You can transfer files using SSH. You casn use WinSCP for it: http://winscp.net/eng/index.php
There'S also a command line client for Windows (also uses SSH): PuTTY: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
