Nook / Other Device Communications?
I do not have a Nook (yet) but I am really leaning towards the Nook for a number of reasons. I think I will wait until after next Tuesday to see what the big announcement is before I buy what may be suddenly old technology.
To my question - Is the Nook a part of my wireless network as a device and can be seen and accessed by other computers on my network?
The other part of that question is - once my Nook is connected to my wireless network or connected by USB wired connection, can I move files (books, magazines, etc,) back and forth between the Nook and my computer? Assuming of course that I download the Nook application to my computer.

Nook is part of your wireless network. I'm sure you can ping it (although I haven't tried), so yes you can access it. But if by "access" you mean can you see nook's drives over windows' file sharing protocol over wifi then the answer is no.
Once softrooted you can also access it via adb which offers many functions from command line - running linux commands on nook and transferring files back and forth (from command line) being 2 of them. Perhaps there's a utility that has GUI for file transfer over adb but I haven't looked.
Additionally once softrooted, you can install Trook and File Manager: Trook can access your calibre library on a PC over proprietary protocol to download ebooks, and File Manager on nook can access other PCs' drives, but I haven't tried that.
Re announcement I'm sure the nook sales between now and 26th will be 0 or close to 0. As a nook owner not ready to part with this one yet, I hope it's a price cut.

To your second part of the question: on USB, the Nook acts as a mass storage device. Just drag and drop files onto or from it to your desktop.
As for the wireless, the Nook uses your WiFi connection for Internet only. Although, running Linux, it theoretically could be set up to run a Samba daemon and become part of your LAN through WiFi. That's the beauty of Linux.
