Generally speaking, you can share Windows devices and/or filesystems/folders with a non-Windows system such as one running OS X. For a printer, the Bonjour service will probably be the easiest option. For file/filesystem sharing, connect to the server as an SMB target from OS X. The option is available directly from the Finder's bar menu.

 

Google for this and you'll find dozens of links with all details. I would not expect things to be different with Win10.

 

If the printer is wireless, you may want to look at possibility to access it directly from your Hackintosh; it only just depends on the make & model and availability of drivers for OS X.
