    (Not a teacher)
    (i)Too, an adverb*, is used at the end of a sentence or clause when it means 'also'.

    (ii)I am/he is/you are, etc. too.
    informal especially American English
    used to emphasize that you disagree with what someone has said about someone or something
    'You're not smart enough to use a computer.' 'I am (not smart enough to use a computer) too!'

    *An adverb modifies another adverb, adjective but not a noun. So your first and second questions are no longer tenable.

    But it doesn't "emphasize" the subject or object; it refers/relates to them.

    I (too)(also) am not smart enough to use a computer.
