Is it possible to connect two computers and a modem ADLS (ethernet) using a
switch?

Usually yes. I assume the router has only one port?

It's a router you need, not a switch. For ADSL most people buy a router
combined with a modem, but you can get a cheaper one with an Ethernet WAN
port.

Thinking about it the device you describe as a Ethernet ADSL modem is likely
to be a single port router so yes, you can put a switch after it to expand
its ports.
