Minetest uses port 30000 by default.

If you start a game from the "advanced" tab and without giving an address, yes. Other people on your network will be able to play. For people to connect over the Internet, you have to either forward your port out to the internet, or use a vpn. Port-forwarding is preferred as it doesn't require additional software, but can be trickier to set up.
