(not owning an wishield)

1) you have to configure the IP address and gateway, mostly  IP = 192.168.1.X  (X is a free subnet number) and GW = 192.168.1.1 (address of your router). In fact similar info as when adding a new laptop to your home network.
Your router must be configured for the protocols used - 802.11b probably; Furthermore routers often have a list of allowed mac addresses for wifi access.YOu have to add the mac address of the wifi shield

2) Yes that is possible, a way to do it is to make a PHP webform on an APache server that accepts your log fields, and let the Arduino POST to the php-processor of that form. By doing it this way you can easily test the DB part.  [NOTE: Arduino itself is too light to do PHP itself]
