To create a server in Quake 3, can I just go into the multiplayer options and select create game [Internet game] and others on the Internet will be able to see me and play.

Kind of. If you have a firewall or router you need to forward port 27960 for inbound UDP traffic to your Q3 server's IP address. Setting up a server while playing is also a clunky way to go about it. If you have an extra machine I would advise hosting a dedicated server. http://www.gameadmins.com has documents which covers the setup and configuration in detail.

you need to be running OSP though but well worth it.

I just basically play normal deathmatch. I've never tried OSP. How different is it from normal.

I have a friend that I want to play with and I just thought I would set something up that he could join on so its just the 2 of us playing

yes if its just you and a friend you can set it up through the ingame menus. then your friend would just /connect [ip] to you in his console.

osp plays the same as normal q3 (same physics except a few bug fixes), but also offers a lot more options like countdown timer to start, custom model colors, stats, etc.
