3: oh that's interesting, but I was talking in a more 'fluff' perspective such as the difference between warhammer and 40k.
1: Just a note on proxying, it depends a lot on what sort of games you're playing. Friendly games against locals? Whatever you decide between you, and many people will be just fine with it. Tournaments are a bit stricter usually, because games are fast, and recognizing which piece a model is supposed to be is quite important, so entire proxies are... sometimes problematic. Any reasonable conversion can be approved by a Tournament Organizer, of course, but I wouldn't count on it in the big tournaments, and getting approval from the organizer first would be a good idea. If you're getting the Warjack kit for the arms anyway, just keep the body and magnatise the arms, so you can just switch them between systems. It's pretty easy to do really, so you might give it some thought.
3: They are two halves of the same game, and they inhabit the same world (same continent even). The Warmachine factions represent the the "civilized" part of the continent on the west coast, mainly the Iron Kingdoms. Eastwards is the wild lands where the Hordes factions mostly reside (Circle Oboros has operatives everywhere, and Trollbloods have settlements in the Iron Kingdoms but they're still mostly in the east). There's a lot of fluff interaction between the two halves, however, and the story lines are definitely not contained to a single game.
It's all in the name.
