Setting SharePoint site for new separate set of users

We have SharePoint Enterprose 2010 farm with 4-5 Web applications (Intranet, Extranet, UserProfile, Finance etc.) and respective site collections inside them.

This is well managed by Active Directory users and groups within our @XYZ.com domain.
Now, our company is getting associated with another small company with just 20 odd users. Hence we need to set up a SharePoint site (may be allocate a complete new Web Application??) for them as well. But we do not want these new company users to configure under our Active Directory, we don’t want to bring them under @XYZ.com domain as we fear that this may lead to complications and security issue.  They will retain their @abc.com domain.

Now, can you suggest me what the best way to accomplish this?
-      Should I go ahead and create new Web Application and then new  site collection under it? I heard with new web application we can have separate set of authentication requirement.
-  Can we use ADFS here?
-      OR just simply hire SharePoint Online from Microsoft for these 20 @abc.com users?
-      Any other suggestion?

You can use ADFS or you can set the new web application up to use forms authentication

or extend the web application and use form based authentication using SQL which more easier to manage from your end.
