-Will it be possible to share custom missions outside of the approval process? For instance, I end up making a replica of the shareware Doom's maps as a test. Could friends and fleet mates play it?
Since Cryptic has declared at every possible opportunity that the Foundry is not a modding tool and if I recall correctly we're not going to be able to import additional textures, models or assets, making a replica of a Doom map as a test seems unlikely. I may be wrong though and people could get very creative.
I think your question is better re-phrased as: "Will my friends be able to play-test my missions even if my missions aren't published yet?"

From what I understand, there's going to be a rating system and if you make a mission that frustrates players, the idea is that frustrated players can give your mission a low rating which in turn means other missions will be offered to players searching for Foundry-made missions before your offending one comes up on the list. I don't think Cryptic is going to be able to monitor our missions directly.
i'm not sure but i think one of the devs mentioned that you will be able to 'invite' players to play you mission, (which got the ppl with no life ranting about spammers) but i think you will be able to share missions with friends b4 they are approved.
