If I buy a new Macbook

how can I use it with my new iMac? I should be able to use my iMac as a server and wirelessly surf the net right, right? Can I access documents, iTunes library and apps from the iMac? Any other cool things to do with two Apples in a house?
This probably sounds stupid, but when it comes to networking and I have no clue.

You don't have to do anything. The two machines find themselves automatically thanks to Bonjour technology. If you have set the iTunes libraries to share, then they will show up in each other's itunes.
You can connect to your other Mac using the finder's "Go" > Connect to Server option. It let's you browse the network for other computers. Then you can login to your account remotely and access your files. I'm not sure you can run Apps like that, though.If you liked this post, consider using the Reputation System.
