I'd rather not, unless you're wondering about something specific - 
there's a quite good example in the pam_cifs documentation.

No.  The Windows file systems don't have the correct functionality to be 
homedirs for Linux, you'll need a local homedirectory and then mount the 
real home directory in a subdirectory.  I didn't want that, so I'm using 
Samba on the server side.

Not tested, but I can't think of any reasons why it shouldn't work.  I'm 
one of the developers of pam_cifs, and I can't think of any reason 
pam_cifs with winbind shouldn't work.

When in fear and when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.
