So here's the situation. Unit A declares a charge against Unit B.
How is this charge resolved? the orange boxes are impassable terrain.
it is very questionable if the two unit clip eachother if A charge straight forward.
Option A: Does A charge straight forward, and make a 90* wheel into the front?
Option B: Does A charge the flank of unit B? if so, how many models from Unit A move into contact?
Option C: A cannot declare the charge?
Second Question. If Option A, or option B is correct, in which direction does B flee if B chooses to flee as a charge reaction?

I do know the answer to your second question, but i'm not sure about the first.
For the direction of flight, draw a line from the center of the charging unit to the center of the fleeing unit. The fleeing unit will move over that line.

Depends on a few things.
A needs to charge B's flank. If there is room for it to move down, pivot to maximise, then 'cloose the door'. Yes.
Even then, now I think about it, even if the terrain is in the way, touching corner to corner is a legal charge, as long as he maximised the best he could.

looking at your diagram I would say that unit A could move down until its leading edge was level with the bottom edge of the left-hand terrain.
It could then wheel 45 degree's (with the corner closest to the bottom edge of the left-hand terrain staying still) and carry on until it hits Unit B (The centre of Unit A would be , roughly, touching the top-right corner of Unit B )
It then 'closes the door' with the flank of Unit B, leaving about half of Unit A's front face in base-to-base contact.
