Handling component links and retrieving the values from the fields of linked component in Dreamweaver TBB

I am working on Dreamweaver TBBs in SDL Tridion 2011 SP1.

I am unaware of handling component links in Dreamweaver TBBs.

Consider my Component name is "A" which has link to another component "B".

Component A source looks like this:

<Content xmlns="Some UUID">
<Name xlink:type="simple" xlink:href="tcm:184-1897"
xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:title="B"></Name>

Component B source is:

<Content xmlns="Some other UUID">
<first>first field</first>
<second>second field</second>

I want to write a DWT TBB which can access the fields in the linked component B from Component A.

I want to use RenderComponentField rendition method.

Do I need to add any extentions to it, will I be able apply SiteEdit on it.

Please share your views on it.

Thank you.
