So let's begin with the scenario and what i would (if possible) to achieve.
I have a mail server A for domain a.com which is handled by qmail + courier and a second mail server B which runs postfix + dovecot + mysql for (sub)domain sub.a.com.
I want to forward (i'm not quite sure this is the right term) some of the email addresses from A to B because i can't run IMAP on A and i really need it for those addresses. Now is it possible to do this and if yes what should i look for?
I would also like to use B as MTA for those users but if i send an email for example from firstname.lastname@example.org to appear as if it was sent from email@example.com (i guess this is called address rewrite ?).
thank you and a great day,

If the users on server A (firstname.lastname@example.org) have normal accounts you can use a '.qmail' file to forward mail from server A to server B. See example 3 of the dot-qmail man page.
If you are using some kind of virtual users program on Server A, e.g. vpopmail, it shouldn't be too difficult to do the same thing.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
