Default C programming USB port communication?

Would it be possible to make a small plain C program that could transfer characters from one computer to another computer using a USB cable? I was thinking maybe command prompt? Both computers have command prompt open and one is the receiver the other the sender. You choose which one you want to be in a menu. I'm pretty sure I have the cable just need to look for it. Is there such a thing as a free USB port simulator I could use in the mean time to check if the program works? A working C program would greatly help since I learn best by example but any other help will be greatly appreciated. I have really no idea where to start. How do I open the port, direct chars to it, get them read onto the command prompt, and so on.
Connecting a USB cable from one computer to another will not create a short circuit, correct?
