Can iTunes be loaded on a system running windows xp?  Or can I connect my shuffles directly to my phone?

I currently have 2 iPod shuffles, which I love and use during basketball workouts. I recently updated some songs on my iPhone 5, and was trying to update my playlists on my shuffles. My laptop Lenovo think pad r61, is still on windows xp. I was unable to access iTunes recently and tried reinstalling iTunes on my laptop. Unfortunately I'm unable to reinstall an updated iTunes due to updated requirements.
1. Is there a current version of iTunes that will run on my laptop?
2. Can I somehow connect my shuffles directly to my phone, to update, or sync my playlists?
