Ok...I know a little bit about switches but not enough to answer this question my self. If I was to buy a workgroup switch, do I have to connect it to the Internet in anyway? Generally all I want to use it for is file sharing between computers. The computers wouldn't be connected to the Internet, Just the switch. So if I did this could I make them into a workgroup network and not use Internet or do I really need the Internet?

You don't need internet. All computers connected to switch and configured with manualy assigned IP addreses and masks. It's completely enough for your needs.
