Too dumb to figure out VPN on DD-WRT

VPNFilter: I like my home network, but I want to access it outside of my home. How do I set up my WRT54GL running DD-WRT v23 SP2 to do that?

Versions of this question have been asked on metafilter zillions of times, but I haven't found an answer that I understand because of my tiny brain.
The specific desires:
>Wake on LAN for home computer, running XP
>Remote access and manipulation of files on home computer
>Possibly secure tunneling using SSH, although I assume this will in part be a side product of everything else; I don't need this yet but would like to have it in case I am using some shady wireless access point in the future.
>What other cool things could I do with my setup?
I know about Hamachi, but from what I can tell using DD-WRT makes Hamachi unnecessary. Is this true?
