Hello, don't know much about wireless yet, so can someone please tell
me if these are possible:

1) I want to connect  a (normally) *wired* IP ethernet camera to a
wired router about 80m away clear line of sight. Is there a pair of
wireless dongly things I can plug into the lan sockets of both to take
the place of the lan cable?

2) Similar setup, but connecting a bog standard normally wired USB
webcam wirelessly to a computer. Again, the wireless link serving the
same function as a USB cable.

I know one can buy wireless cameras and routers, but I just want to
replace the cables with wireless dongles type things that plug into
the back of the original wired gadgets instead of the cable.
Suggestions please?

Sure.  You want a point-to-point bridge.  Cable a wireless access point
to the wired router; cable a wireless Ethernet (client) bridge to the
camera; and setup the wireless connection.

Not AFAIK.  You'd need a wireless Ethernet (client) bridge with a USB
port and a webcam driver, which I don't think exists.

Other alternatives:

* Phoneline networking
* Coax networking
