The problem you're facing is this: You have two wires, and you want to run
a network over those two wires.
The phone company can do that between them and yourself, because they have
the DSL concentrator on their end, and you have a DSL modem. If you're
going to run a network between you and your friend on the same wires, you
need to emulate the same sort of setup. You can't just connect the wires
to the modem on his end and on yours, and expect it to work.
In short, yes, you can probably do a circuit with the current physical
layer. But, you have to provide signalling on that circuit to be able to
create a network, be it DSL, ethernet, etc.
ps: Feel free to email me directly, as this is drifting off-topic for misc.
