GeoDa spatial weights files may be read into R using the read.gal() and 
read.gwt2nb() functions in the contributed package "spdep". These

output. read.geoda() in "spdep" is a wrapper for read.csv().

These more general questions are handled - as many have pointed out - in 
the data import/export manual:
