Default remote desktop

I have a couple questions about Remote Desktop.
1) Is there a way that I can Remote Desktop to another machine and take over their accounts Desktop? I've seen it done, but I don't know what kind of software/commands this requires.
2) Is there a way that two Computer users can be logged into the same machine at once as you can on Linux machines? Say the user "John" is logged in locally, and another user "Bill" wants to login remotely.
