DCL + WDW trip - rent points or pay cash?

So now that I'm really looking into combining a DCL + WDW vacay next September, I've started doing research on the boards and found several threads in which people offer to "rent" points.

We are not DVC members - looked into it, but realized we may not want to own that kind of responsibility, especially if we're not sure we'll vacay at WDW indefinitely.

When someone offers points for rent, are they only available to DVC members? Is there a way for non DVC members to rent/purchase points to use for DCLs or WDW? If so, when someone gives the price per point (say, $12 per point, for argument's sake), does that JUST cover the cost of the villa? Additionally, can one get free dining or pin codes when using DVC points? I'm not sure how to calculate the cost of points vs. cash because, well, I'm not sure what they cover.

Sorry for all the questions. Just want to be sure we leave no stone unturned. :-)

UPDATE: Wasn't quite sure where this should go. Please feel free to move this thread if need be!
