    Absolutely, because there is no literal "good" that derives from it and applies.  It certainly is not good for the person being banned.

    B. The addition of "for good" does nothing. Being banned alone says it all.

    Yes - used in this case as an adverbial phrase to mean permanently.

    a) yes

    "for good" implies for ever.
