    is there away to route calls.

    lets say, if someone from area code 222 calls phone number 555-555-5555 to
    foward these calls to 723-222-2222
    but uf the area code is 232 calls the same number 555-555-5555 to forward
    these calls to 333-333-3333?

    can this be done

    Sure, if you're running Asterisk or something similar you can handle and
    route your calls any way you want. This isn't so much about VoIP per se as
    about having control over what happens with your phone calls, which happens
    to be much easier (cheaper) with VoIP.

    Nowhere - it's a unix program. If you have an old computer lying around and
    you don't need anything that's currently on its hard drive, you can download
    a CD image that will automatically install Linux and Asterisk onto it.

    Well, actually you can download it from the link on this page:

    but what it actually does is dynamically set up a fake little virtual Linux
    environment when you run it.
