Talking

I actually don't see any problem with either play, unless perhaps the pass was forward, which you said it wasn't. The handoff could be similar in nature to the center-sneak, fumble-rusky genre of plays. I could be wrong too

Any player on team-A can catch a backward pass. There is no foul on the first play.

The second play could be a foul if the conditions for handing a ball to a lineman are not met. See 7-3-2-a

Essentially, a covered-up tight end is simply an additional tackle. Treat him like a lineman with regard to all rules.

Legal play on the backward pass. Any A (or B) player may receive a backward pass. The hand off is legal if backward also, if it is forward then the lineman requirements must be met.
