User authentication is done against the pool they are homed against.

Concerning the Director Role:  In Microsoft Lync Server 2010, a Director is a separate server role that can serve as an internal next hop server to which an Edge Server routes inbound SIP traffic destined for internal servers. Directors are used to authenticate enterprise users connecting from outside the corporate firewall and to route these users to their home pools. A Director does not home any users or provide presence or conferencing services.

I'm not trying to be rude here but have you read the Lync implementation documentation at all?  Everything you are asking is clearly explained there in.

You will need a Domain COntroller, as the servers will belong to the domain and your user account will be created in AD.
