How to get the most out of an android device?

So I followed my own advice
and I now own a Galaxy Nexus. It's my first android experience. Help me get the most out of it.

1) I'd like to be able to use Google Voice to make and receive calls via wifi even if I take the sim card out, as long as I have a wireless network. How can I make that happen? Right now, my google voice account can only do texts in the above without a sim card.
2) I'd like to occasionally hit a switch and have whatever browser I'm using spoof desktop information, so that I'm treated like a computer instead of like a mobile device. What's the best way to do that?
3) I'd like to (without paying extra) find a way to turn the phone into a mobile hotspot. Are there programs for this?
4) I'd like at least one turn-based RPG timewaster like Shining in the Darkness, Phantasy Star, Wizardy series, or Final Fantasy. Pay is fine, if it's good.
5) Any other random apps I should try, or settings/tricks that I should know about?
