No, thats not samba that can helpout in points 2 and 3.
3) Can be done with GPO settings.
But this is no easy task and i'll bet i'll fine a loophole somewhere if you have set everything.
If you dont need printing at all disable printing completely on the windows pc's.
I would enable auditing on that share and enforce printing through cups and monitor both.
Or publish the files through a webserver and set these restrictions there, thats possible also.
But your forgetting one very important thing here. Ok, i open a file (read only),
and I take my phone and take a picture of the screen and print that at home.
And gone is your protection and its not monitored.
