Can the NDS LCD screens be connected to a PC ( e.g. S-video card)?

With the appropriate controller hardware/software yes.....as a practical matter, only if you are experienced in designing embedded hadrware/firmware/software. The DS LCD uses dedicated hardware and firmware both off-chip and on the ARM microcontroller chip that handles the display.
That being said, plenty of hobbyists do that type of thing all the time. With a little elbow grease they coax video out of PICs and AVRs all the time, even VGA. There are also tons of projects that make use of surplus cell phone screens. I will dig around on the forums and see what is possible, I know there are some sources for those screens as I have replaced them on a few DS lites. Be nice to use them to build several things!
