guys~~ I am trying to get a through understanding about Windows's management mechanism about account, users, user token, especially impersonation and so on. I know these words putting together forms a mess, no strange, cause i am just starting on this topic.. Many thanks.

Scenario: I am trying to write a small program to test impersonation. I want to start a new process with another domain account through impersonation. But I have read that impersonation is basically for thread, could it be possible for process?

Mark Russinovich has a wealth of Windows internals information. He works at Microsoft now... see this link.

The sysinternals suite (made by him) has utilities (free) for checking things like tokens and user privileges and such too.
