The end user computers can only connect to one domain.  You will have to configure trusts between domains

Yes, the best way to do this would be to setup trusts.  They would not necessarily need to login to the other domains, but as long as they are added as a two way trust then you could add in the groups from the other domains to the shares on your domain and vice versa.  The infrastructure manager role takes care of cross site group replication, and knowledge, etc.

However, when interactive logons is enabled in the default domain group policy, the users will have the option to login to the other domains.
