There's a request for my password. Would that be my Gmail password? Will I need a separate account from the provider my wife uses for her desktop's internet connection? Will I need a separate modem? This stuff is all new to me, so these might be really basic issues most know about.

In addition to above suggestion.
The Chromebook is linked to your Google account and you sign in with that username and password.
Once you have signed in - it will open to the desktop and should start to look for your Wi-Fi internet connection used by all in the household and you then log in by using the username and password of the internet provider.
And that is the same
provider my wife uses for her desktop's internet connection

To echo what has been said, it will depend on what the password is being requested. If you are talking about for accessing a wireless connection in your home, it would be that password; you don't need another modem if you are in a home that already has wireless internet.

If you mean a google account that you are setting up on the chromebook, then you can use your own google account (for example, a G-Mail account is also your Google account) or you can create a new one, but more than likely you would want to use your own one.
