It works like this. Create AGroup page:

  * BGroup
  * CGroup

Now create BGroup and CGroup and list there the users in those groups. 
You can now use AGroup:read,write in acls. All the members of BGroup 
and CGroup will have AGroup rights.

No, use groups.

You can have your customized EditTemplates macro, that filter the page 
list by language, group etc.
