Yes, you surely can. It's called Synergy and it will help you do exactly what you are asking. http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/

No you don't need extra hardware. The only requirement is that they both be connected on a local network and one of the two is the mouse/keyboard server and the other is the client.

For OS X I suggest SYNERGY THE MISSING GUI FOR OSX this saves you from setting this up from terminal.

The previous users link was sufficient for your windows pc.
