You first need to make sure your router is set up to allow incoming connections, by forwarding ports to your home machine.

Website ~ Port 80
FTP ~ 20 and 21
Remote Desktop ~ 3389

Once these are setup in your router you should have access from your friends house.

If you wanted to access your pc (via remote desktop) from an external address, you will want to make sure that port 3389 is forwarded to the pc that you want to access.

Also, in order to get around having a dynamic IP address you can use DynDNS.com http://www.dyndns.com
Signing up is free, and once your IP changes dyndns will automatically update.
