There is one very simple answer to the Mac to PC problem, get Windows for your Mac with VMware. (Parallels does not support iSight.)
What program are you using to video chat with the PC? I haven't seen any problems using Yahoo between Mac's and PC's. If you are using Yahoo and you're having problems, check your Yahoo video settings.

The installation process asks for permissions like most, then takes you to a screen divided into four sections: Your friends list, your chat video, a place to chat by typing and the video of the person with whom you will chat.
Unless you have someone already waiting to chat on Facebook, you can press the "Chat Next Shuffle" button and the app will find you an app user with whom to chat. You can also invite friends both on and off Facebook to chat.
Download the voice and video chat plug-in, quit all open browser windows, and install the plug-in.
Sign in to Gmail, iGoogle or orkut.
In your chat list, select the contact you want to call. If they have
a camera icon next to their name, you can make a voice or video call to
them; just click the camera icon to place a video call or the phone icon to place a voice call.
If your friend doesn't have a camera next to their name in your chat
list, you can invite them to download the voice and video chat plug-in
from the Video & more menu in a chat window. Even if your friend
doesn't have a video camera, you can still have a voice chat or a 1-way

just checking, but did you use ichat? ichat is the chat client for AIM on a mac. they show icons next to the people that you can audio or video chat with. it shows a video camera next to those who you can mutually video chat with. if you click the icon, it makes a video chat. if you were looking to use a service other than AIM, i suggest meebo.com. you just hit the webcam icon once chatting with someone and you are ready to go (assuming you have the isight webcam in your macbook).
hope this helps ;-)
If you are using VMware Fusion at the same time that you get the problem then it is Fusion. Check by shutting down Fusion then trying the iChat. If it works fine then it's definitely Fusion that is interrupting it.
With internet sharing off as you describe the next thing is to make sure that it is also not sharing the iSight itself. When fusion is running but not windows itself, check the configuration of your windows bootable in Fusion. (You'll have to excuss me a bit as I havn't used Fusion for a bit since switching over to Parallels) Check to see if the iSight is listed among the USB devices.
If it's not there load up windows and check which devices are connected there from the main Fusion Menu or the little icons on the Fusion Status bar. If it's not, double check by right clicking on MyComputer and choosing properties then go to Device Manager and then looking in there for any USB camera devices. If it is, right click and disable it.
I'm assuming when you say they login with AOL, that you mean they use AOL Instant Messenger, since iChat is compatible with that. If that is the case, it should work. As long as the chat clienta are compatible, there should be no issue with using a Mac and a PC.
