Yes, this is possible. In thread-per-connection mode, you can just block
in the callback. If you use an event loop, you must call
MHD_suspend_connection(), and then MHD_resume_connection() once you are
ready to serve the reply.

Nope, but there are libraries like libwget2 and libcurl for that. contains an example for implementing a proxy
combining MHD and libgnurl.
