How do you setup Remote Desktop to monitor any connection made to a PC? In other words, I have a PC sitting here, and I want to monitor who logs into it via Remote Desktop. Is this possible?

You can track logging successes and failures by setting up an audit policy using Local Computer Policy. From the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Audit Policy | Audit logon events. Be cautious logging successes, as this will make the event log very full.
