You can use Putty to create an SSH tunnel, so that you can access remote linux machine in a secure way. If you have root access you can configure additional server requirements easily using SSH.

Putty is a good GUI tool to use. You will still need to understand the basics of whats going on. To learn the command line way,,, are what you need. These site has what you need to get up to speed.

Try to google about the remote desktop access on linux from windows using VNC or as suggested us SSH access.

I'm using SSH (and SFTP) for this.
Wake-on-LAN might also come in handy, ArchWiki has a nice explanation of it:
Both SSH and WoL are pretty easy to set up and even Android phones have clients for them.

If you mean SSH. You have to enable it if it is disabled in order to use SSH.
