The writers of "First Contact" would have been almost oblivious to the existence of "Federation". Who knows, maybe mention of Cochrane around the traps got the movie team thinking?
Very unlikely. If the filmmakers had known a book had just done something with the character, it would've been more likely to discourage them from using a similar idea, if anything. And it's not like there haven't been multiple other instances of the novelists and the show staff coming up with similar ideas close together. Surak's Soul and "The Seventh" come to mind, for example, or Seven of Nine and "Infinite Regress."
