comment Can I obtain grounding from a different outlet?
It may be a lot easier to simply ground the other two outlets - open up the outlet box and see if there is a ground wire present. I know you said you're renting, but if you feel that concerned about it, you can undo it when you're done.

comment Are non-GFCI outlets that are downstream of a GFCI outlet ground fault protected if they are fed from the GFCI outlet's load side?
Yes it is perfectly fine, only certain areas need gfci, and if the usage numbers for that circuit allow it, it could go other places in the house e.g., bathroom gfci to hall outlet, hall outlet doesn't need to be gfci protected.

comment Why is it OK to use a 50 A receptacle on a 40 A circuit?
@HenryJackson My feeling is that there is no 40A plug/receptacle standard, and the idea is that all else being equal, the 40A breaker would trip if a device tried to draw 45A of current through this receptacle, then all things being equal, it was considered "ok". Just a guess, though
