Default Mind Control Questions

A Bard has joined my on-going DF party... with the Mind Control ability. So, I'm trying to get my head wrapped around what this character and and can't do. I've read the Advantage's description, and then looked through the forums here and the FAQ (but didn't find much.) So, here are my questions:

1) Can everything w/o Immunity(Mind Control) be controlled (like wild animals)?

2) What if the target doesn't understand the language the Bard is using? Do the commands work on intent or understanding?

3) What about trying to control something that is being possessed by another "mind"?

4) If the ability is resisted, the target knows that an attempt to dominate their mind was made. What happens when they fail, then the effect ends? I assume that they remember everything and know that they were controlled (unless maybe the caster told them to forget?)

I'm sure I'll have other questions, but that should cover what I need for planning the next session.
