Actually, it doesnt 'see' the other CPU, it see another installation of maya and copy the needed files on that node and each one render half of the job.

You can do this without license problem if you use the maya renderer, but for mental ray, I have heard hat you need to buy additional licences at a ridiculous price. So you might want to check that out if you use MR...

There are a few software that can help you do this, do a search on google for : maya render node software and you should get some names.

Sorry, I have no idea, but my guess would be no. You better write a mail to the developper of the plugin for infos.
