How do I transfer files from one computer to another WITHOUT using the internet? Is this even possible?

Remove the HD from the old computer and put it in an external enclosure. Then connect to the new computer with a USB. This will transfer files but not programs.
You can also use a USB-to-USB bridging cable between computers.
Use EaseUS PCTrans with a bridging cable to transfer files and programs.

You should be able to do this through your local network - the connection goes through your router not the internet. If both computers are logged into the same microsoft account it should be easy, a bit more complicated if they are not. I used to do this but because I rarely have two devices running at once I reverted to using a usb thumb drive which has become habit - the added advantage is that if anything goes wrong (or I do something stupid) the thumb drive serves as a back-up. Plus you can put the files on the thumb drive and copy it to the second machine later or whenever you choose.

Be careful about using a USB to USB cable - usb also deals with some power and isn't intended for this, (it was always a big no no in the past though that might have changed a bit with the newest standards) unless as said previously it's a specific bridging cable intended for the job.

Good advice from @Edwin and @AndiJones.
It depends on how many files you wish to transfer. Bluetooth is an option if not many and there are many 3rd party programs as well
