    Does your copier have a usb port or an ethernet port?

You might have a problem running it that way. I use a parallel print server. They come wired or wireless. That way you won't run into any compatibility problems with the print drivers.

It will run faster too because the spooling can be controlled better through the copier.

This is the recommended way by Sharp as well.

You might be able to connect it USB or with a parallel cable. Most computers nowadays don't have a parallel input, so you'll need some sort of converter.
Most of those machines were copier only, though, and you'd be hard pressed to find a print controller for it in 2015.

Cannot scan to my PC

If you are using a usb connection and can print and have button manager installed then go to control panel to scanners and try to have windows find a scanner. Your driver disk must be in the computer. you have to install the sharp scanner drivers from the disk for it to work. Button manager will let you decide how to use the scanner.

Compatibility with a Mac.

You can use it as a printer if you have a USB port or an ethernet connection if you have your copier connected to the network.
Scanning probably isn't available.
