I have accomplished both, but can't remember how.  I looked through the MS KB and couldn't find anything.  I finally found it in my ES Resource Guide.  What you need to do is set up a delegate user.

1. Log onto the client as the mailbox owner.
2. In the folder list, select the mailbox or a mailbox folder.
3. File-Properties-Permissions tab.
4. Choose Add
5. Choose name and select OK.
6. Grant the permissions.

To open another user's mailbox as delegate.
1. From the client, Tools-Services
2. Select Exchange Server and Properties.
3. Advanced tab-Add
4. In ADD Mailbox, add that mailbox.

You will need to view the From field and select the From address if it is not the default mailbox.  I have done this to unsubscribe some who have left the company when it has to be done through email.
You don't, physically.  You can create a mailbox and give rights to multiple users such as "SEND AS".

I need to have two people read and send the same mailbox with different credentials; how would you work around this problem? (will increase points to 100 for your advice)
I wasn't holding out for more points.  I was just trying to remember how I accomplished it.  Let me know if I can help any more.
