If it is a desktop, then replace the antenna on the desktop pci card. If it is a laptop, there will normally be a cover on the bottom to reveal a wifi card. It will have two wires coming out of it. This is where the antennas attach. If you post more details, the instructables community can provide a better, more specific answer.

You can, as long as the built-in wifi has a port, or somewhere you can solder an antenna pigtail wire to connect to the antenna in the cantenna.
