You should be able to map a drive to a domain connected computer by providing the appropriate credentials.

In a DOS batch file, you can use this to map a Q drive:

NET USE Q:  \\DOMAINCOMPUTER\Sharename password /user:DOMAIN\username

Or for a more lifelike example:

NET USE Q: \\DM-Workstation1\MyFiles pa$$Word /user:MyHouse\JrSitman

If you fail to provide the password, it will prompt you when you run the batch.

You can also map a drive from Explorer (open My computer > Click tools > Map Network Drive

Put the path in and provide alternative credentials, using the DOMAIN\Username format for the username.

Yep. Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_File_synchronization_software. SyncToy from MS as tmassa99 suggested is a very fine tool as well.
You'll need to map the source and either provide authentication to the domain or give everybody permission to access the folder on the domain. I strongly recommend that you provide authentication.
