There is easy way but you have to create hotspot. First check is your Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager -> Network Adapters , if there is anything mentioned as wireless then you can create hotspot using hotspot creation softwares like OSToto hotspot.
If desktop don't have wireless adapter, purchase the universal serial bus (USB) wireless card, it is small, easy and portable. You have to plug it into the USB port of your desktop and install the wireless driver for it. It is dongle which also acts as wireless router to create hotspot.

Yes, you can share your LAN connection with your smartphone. However, I have not tried this method, but even then I am sharing this method here.
Note that your smartphone must be rooted for this process.
You will have to do 'Reverse Tethering' in your smartphone to get internet access through Desktop PC.
Download the Reverse Tethering app from the Play Store and then you will have to perform the instructions prescribed in the app itself.
In this way, you will be able to access Internet in your smartphone.

However, if you have wifi adapter in Deskop PC, then you can directly access internet by creating Wifi Hotspot in your Desktop PC.
