VLAN / WAN Questions

I have a silly question...I have two offices. They are seperated by about 100 miles. We are connected via a T3 & Cisco routers. I want to create 3 VLANS at each location, VLAN5, VLAN6, and VLAN7 at EACH office. My question is, if I create VLAN5 in office A & VLAN5 in office B, will the user who are members of VLAN5 be able to see & use computers in each office as long as they are members of the same VLAN? I guess what I'm trying to ask is, I know the VLANs will work within each office but what type of configuration will have to be done on the routers to get the VLAN5 to go across the WAN. Basiclly, I'm trying to create a VLAN to go across the WAN so I can use it fo downloading apps from the Internet so it won't interfere with bandwidth issues on the other VLANs. Is this possible?

To All,
So in other words, even though I have a seperate VLAN setup across the WAN just for bandwidth hog downloads, it could still slow the other users on the other VLANs?

Let me be a little more specific to help you understnad my situation...There are two different buildings, two very different companies in each building but use the same network....(go figure I wasn't here when all this was set up originally)...In order for me to keep MY network (My LAN/WAN) safe, secure, and so if one of the other users at the other company start a 1GB download in the middle of the work day, to keep my users from slowing down, what is the best way (other than starting from scratch) to do what I wanted to do?
