You have not stated whether the postfix box is a dedicated server wth no 
local user login a and b.  Restrict outbound mail with SASLAUTH.  
Instead of using PAM, you may have to create your own authorized user 
db.  I think this can be done, search the postfix mailing list archive.

AFAIK, any number of users can set their From header to whatever they 
want in the MUA.  In your MUA set your From header to a at example.com

Check the relay domain parameters for outbound mails.  IIRC, postfix 
supports regular expression matching.  Inbound it does not matter if 
this server is on a local net.

Not sure what you are asking.  In the begining of your post, you claim 
you have already done 1 and 2 with postfix.
