Most NAS servers allow the NAS server to join the domain and be treated like a normal file server, with control of permissions, quotas etc. Windows based NAS servers are the most compatible with Windows domains & functionality, but are usually a bit more pricey than Linux based ones.

Yes folder restrictions/quota as standard features amongst NAS servers these days.
Have a look at www.snapappliance.com. Their systems can easily be combined in a hetreogenous network, can be integrated into AD or configured in a workgroup as it does have it's own management system.
