The schema is included in exampls/LDAP/samba.schema
You don't have to create the entries.  winbindd will do
that for you.  You just need to make sure that the 'ldap idmap suffix'
is set correctly and exists in the DIT.

If you get stuck, let me know and I'll dig up some
more information for you.

Not currently but Luke Howard @ PADL has written an AD
plugin for winbindd that you could use.  Check http://padl.com/.
