libceepluspluslib_la_SOURCES = $(libceelib_la_SOURCES)
EXTRA_libceepluspluslib_la_SOURCES = dummy.cpp

See `info Automake "How the Linker is Chosen"'.

Why do you have a separate directory for this?
But yes, this is possible.

You can use relative paths from the one directory to the other
  libceepluspluslib_la_SOURCES = ../foo/foo.c

or you can just remove both files altogether, move one level
up and do a nonrecursive build of these directories:

  lib_LTLIBRARIES = sub1/ sub2/
  sub1_libfoo_la_SOURCES = ...
  sub2_libfoo_la_SOURCES = $(sub1_libfoo_la_SOURCES)

You will probably want
  AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS = subdir-objects

in this case.  See `info Automake Alternative' for more information.

No, but Automake/Autoconf will add an appropriate VPATH statement into
the Makefile anyway, so you won't have to do this.

See above.

See above.

Hope that helps.
