If your system is not registered to RHN (which would cost you money) then you shouldn't use RHEL in the first place. Install CentOS instead, it is a free version of RHEL without the branding. It will function in the same way and you will be able to install packages using the yum package manager.

You can install any package that is meant for your distribution. Your first problem is that you downloaded the packages for RHEL 5, they won't work on RHEL 6. The second problem is that you also have to download and install all packages that are listed as dependencies for the package you want to install. Normally this would be done by the yum package manager automatically, but since you aren't registered (the cheapest option is 49$/year, IIRC) you have to do it manually. With CentOS you will get this functionality for free.

that's a generic network error. check your DNS settings, default gateway etc. until you can run "ping mirrorlist.centos.org" don't look at anything more complex.
