Is there anyway to enumerate which wsus server my PC is downloading the security updates from?

Also, is it possible for wsus to patch servers in different domains?

You can check which server you are using by scanning through the %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log

You should find a line that is along the lines of:
Server URL = http://wsusservername/SimpleAuthWebService/SimpleAuth.asmx

You can use WSUS to patch servers in a different domain, as long as the remote server can connect to the WSUS server then it will work. WSUS is not tightly integrated to AD.
