Turn everyone into Tim. Awesome!

Flavor text seems like a reference the famous six-word story by Hemingway: http://www.sixwordstories.net/2008/12/for-sale-baby-shoes-never-used-ernest-hemmingway/

can you enchant an opponents creature with this and use it to ping itself or others?

exactly... but also when you think about it: this is about the cheapest you can go when looking to make friends for Tim, not the only way, but simple and to the point.
A must for your snipe and direct damage collection.

No. Notice it says "Enchanted creature has..." The creature basically gains a pinging ability, and only a creature's controller can activate abilities on creatures he or she controls unless explicitly stated otherwise (Feral Hydra, for example). You control the aura, not the creature. Now, if it said "tap this card and the creature it enchants" then it would work that way. But as it is, no.

Horseshoe Crab, simple and deadly.

I love the flavor text on this one so much better than Hermetic Study.

Hermetic Study / Psionic Gift + Sigil of Sleep + Horseshoe Crab can easily keep your opponent's board clear of creatures, so long as they don't have shroud.

Most basic combo. Put on deathtouch.

By itself just for the ability its much more efficient to run a 3 drop pinger which blue has, that way your not spending 2 cards to get a ping. But of course this card is ment to go on any creature that can untap or has a deals Damage (not combat damage) to a player effect.
