Ashwin is correct on #1.  When company A is federated to company B, that is an all or nothing ordeal.  You cannot "out of the box" do anything to prevent users from A contacting people in company B, you cannot limit whom you see on the far side.  There were some demo's early in the days of OCS of people writting UMCA applications on the edge server that did somethings to limit traffic but they were only demo's and I didn't find any commercial programs out there.

1) You will be Company B and Company C to the federation List.
But you would not be able to restrict users to access to only Company B contacts. (as far as i know).

2) Company B users would have nothing to do with Company C users.
Since the Federation is between Company A -> Company B. & Company A -> Company C.

Users in Company A would be able to add contacts of Company B & Company C.

If Company B and Company C has to talk to each other then there sould be a Federation between Company B and Company C.
