Sure, you can have fast roaming between building on the same subnet. It depends on your wireless infrastructure and network design to how this will happen (controller vs. autonomous deployment).

For autonomous mode, yes. You need to configure WDS.

We dont have any Authentication server in our setup, it is possible to do romaing with Authenticate server.

Roaming will happen regardless. If you are using PSK then you really don't need to worry about fast roaming. The point of fast roaming is to reduce the amount of time it takes to reauthenticate. Since you wouldn't be passing credentials to a Radius server its not an issue.
