What difference does it make? They are shared libraries regardless of what their name is.

You can call them dynamically without extracting, just read "man dlopen" on AIX and pay attention to RTLD_MEMBER flag. You should probably also read this:

Yes.

Are you sure the buffers you provided (ociLda and ociHda) are large enough? Try making them 64K and see if the problem goes away. If it does, they *are not* large enough and you have caused stack corruption.
