Question PW1 Mobile network thetering?

So I have opened my Kindle Paperwhite 1 and found that there is a modem with some SIM card. I was wondering if it's possible to put my own SIM card and the network would work?
Or it's possible but very difficult and requires a lot of knowledge and hacking. And finally, if all above positive, would it be also possible to thether this connection to the PC?
Spoiler:
I remember that probably in the old days, when some 3G kindles had free all-around-the-world connection to amazon, wikipedia etc., and people hacked their kindles so they not only thetered the connection but also tunneled it, so they could use other sites.

Please note the forum policy posted about 6 years ago:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=200942

I.E: That policy had been in force for about 3 years when you joined.
So if you where seeing directions on tethering, it wasn't at this site.
