comment From QGIS to PostGIS
@bable - use ogr2ogr. Along the lines of: ogr2ogr -f "PostgreSQL" PG:"host=localhost user=<user> dbname=postgis password=<password> active_schema=OS_Data" "\\<server>\<share>\MyTable.tab" -a_srs "epsg:27700" -nlt GEOMETRY

comment MapInfo Professional: Can't modify table structure
I suspect the table is read only (probably because of table joins) - can you try File>save copy as... to create a fresh table and then open the new table and re-trying your steps for re-ordering the columns?

is your shape file complete? - i.e. do you have the shx file too? (see forums.esri.com/Thread.asp?c=9&f=85&t=61866)

comment How to convert Mapinfo “.Map” file (without .TAB) into SHP?
do you have any similarly formatted data, which you could copy and rename the tab file to create a complete set of files that can be read into MapInfo (or for conversion using ogr2ogr)?

May be you need to add GeoServer to your set up, use this for grabbing the OpenSpace data and then opening that through QGIS? source - gis.stackexchange.com/questions/10200/…

comment Mapinfo Runtime is throwing error
Forgive me if I'm wrong, but aren't Runtime and ProViewer different entities? If its ProViewer that you're using, thats very limited - does it even support what you're trying to do?
