There's a strong chance that you can't use the fax at all, even for faxes.

Quite likely that you have a "winmodem" which uses Windows software to send faxes on a cut-down (cheap) modem.

One of my problems is that this is a wireless printer and I am not able to directly connect it to the computer.
That's not a problem in itself, you just need to ensure that the printer is connected to your wireless network. Then, it should be visible to CUPS as a network printer.

Since it is also a fax, there is place to plug a phone line but i am assuming that it will do no good to connect it to my computer via a phone line, correct?
No, that won't work
