I'm completely new to any kind of networking.

I'd like to connect 2 Mac towers and I'd like to access them from one desktop.
If possible I'd also like to use them both to speed exports & transcoding.

Can anybody give me the basics of accessing 2 Macs from one desktop??

They are both older gear:
2x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xenon
Mac OS 10.5.8

I typically just connect them with a simple switch bought at any electronic store via ethernet and use screen sharing to access them. If you already have a wireless / wired router this is already possible.

The only downside is that it's often slow running high-res video off a machine you're screen sharing into. But that depends on the network setup. If you're wired you're typically fine.
