Offside was not introduced as a separate rule. English football has always had offside. The earliest sets of rules which were drawn up in the nineteenth century all included an offside rule.
To be offside, you do not have to touch it. If you interfere with an opponent (e.g. possibly lunge at him) or gain an advantage by being there (e.g. recover a deflection off the keeper or goalpost) are also enough.
You are not guilty of an offside infraction if you receive the ball directly from a throw-in by a team-mate, the defender deflection would still count as "the throw-in" unless they controlled the ball first. Even if they did control the ball, you are not guilty of an offside infraction if an opposing player passed it.

Yes, there is an offside penalty in American Football. The neutral zone is defined as the area extending from the tip of the football to each side of the field, so the neutral zone is as wide as the length of the football. No player, except the center, may have any part of his body in the neutral zone at the time the ball is snapped, otherwise they are guilty of being offside. On a kickoff, no player may have any part of his body across the line upon which the ball rests prior to the kick, except for the holder if one is used. The penalty for offside is 5 yards.

If the player receiving the ball is behind, or level with, the penultimate (second from last) defender when the ball is played, there is no offside. If the player receiving the ball is behind, or level with, the ball at the moment is is played, there is also no offside infraction. But, if the player receiving the ball is ahead of both the ball and the penultimate defender, and is not on his own half of the field, then the offside infraction must be enforced.
