Yes, that's right, all sub-folder depend of the same quotaroot

>  Q2) If I set a quota higher than 50Mb to any of those subfolders, say 60Mb for Trash, then can the user move messages to the Trash folder until they sum 55Mb (all messages on Trash sum 55Mb), *without* affecting the INBOX limit? I mean, the user will still be able to receive messages if Trash has 55Mb?

Yes It should be.
