    So, what I need to know is if it is possible or not to create, on a MacBook 10.7.3, to create a Wi-Fi network (or any other network) that connects a Mac and a PC, without using any internet connection. Also, it needs to be fast and will carry a lot of data, so bluetooth is kind of ruled out.

    Can someone help me?

    (The network would be for a minecraft server, if it matters)

    Sure! Internet connection isn't required to establish a WiFi network.

    You can do that with OS X using the "Create Network" function in the Airport menubar controls. However, it might be best, for what you're describing, to simply buy a wireless router for that purpose. You do not need to hook it up to an internet connection in order to provide a local network like that.
