You can try looking at There you can find a lot of documentations about Sun Products (including Solaris)

There are several ways to change the IP/hostname, issuing a sys-unconfig as root will unname the system and when it reboots it will walk you through the network parameters "wizard style". This may erase more than you want though. You can also edit these files and reboot:
/etc/hostname.hme0 (the hme0 might be different depending on your hardware. could be le0 or qfe0)

Samba will allow your Windows machine to map network drives to the UNIX filesystem. As long as the boxes are both networked and have a route between them (or are on the same subnet), you should be able to ftp files between them.
