Routing of packets is the business of the OS not Squid.

You can use Squid ACLs to determine the outgoing IP address, TOS value
or (on Linux) Netfilter MARK sent by Squid.

Additional configuration of the operating system has to be done to use
those details to actually route the traffic out the appropriate NIC.

Yes. Squid bundles several auth helpers for various AD interface methods
and auth protocols. There are third-party helpers as well from Samba.
