By session passes I assumed that c was referring to passes into the
keynote sessions etc. I'm sure O'Reilly would allow several people into
the exhibit hall. In fact they've told me that you can get into there
for free:

most welcome to sign up for an exhibit hall pass--that's a free pass 
that gives you access to the Products & Services sessions, evening 
events, and birds of a feather sessions as well as the exhibit hall."

Regarding single or multiple booths, I don't think the decision should
be based on weaseling into the sessions. A big booth looks active while
spreading out looks boring so I'd recommend staffing a single booth
