To generate shadows from a Billboard you need to have some dynamic lights (Stationary or Moveable) in your UE4 scene that can cast shadows. With only baked lighting there are no dynamic shadows.

Regarding your other question, I’m not sure what yuh want to accomplish? It looks like both the chair and tripod are real objects captured by a camera? Are you trying to place another layer between them? If you want to place something behind a 3D object rendered in true scene you simply move the billboard behind that object. Or am I misunderstanding?
