Marriott Rewards® Premier Business credit card point transfers

This is my first post.  I've tried using search to find the answers, but that didn't help.

I recently signed up for the Marriott Rewards Visa Signature card.  I spent the $3,000 to receive the 70,000 bonus points. So now I have over 80,000 on my account.

I own a business and I'm currently using the Starwood Amex for my purchases.  I make a lot of purchases through Costco bur unfortunatley they will be changing from Amex to Visa at the end of April.  So now I need a new card for those purchases. 

Here's the question...

1) If I get the Marriott Premier Business (MPB) for my work and spend the $3000 will I get the 70,000 bonus points?

2) Am I able to transfer points between my two cards?

3) If my wife gets a Marriott card will I be able to transfer unlimited points to her?

4) Since I will be getting over a couple a million points a year, will I qualify for Platinum?  My understanding is I get one elite night credit for every $3,000 spent. Is that correct?  And to make Platinum I need 75 points a year?  Would I then qualify for lifetime Platinum once I have 750 points?

5) Can I use my points to send my associates on an overnight stay? And if I send someone somewhere overnight, are they treated as a Platinum member since my business would be,_staysElite_night_


Thank you in advance for helping me with these questions.
