No problem on #1; in fact, that is how a lot of lateral hiring happens. A different version is Prof. Z asks Prof. X to recommend a lateral for Prof. Z's school and suggests Prof. Y. This is partly why post-promotion and post-tenure are such good lateral times.

Number 2 is a problem because the tenure letter should be confidential among writer, candidate, and candidate's school. The letter writer should not share it, at least without permission. That does not stop Prof. X from sharing the gist of the letter with the interested lateraling school.

I agree with Howard.
