Actually, a force out in Softball is, for example: If runners are on first and second, the force out is at third because the runner is forced to run to third base due to the runners behind him/her.

On an interference call that you described, batter/runner is called out and all runners return to the base they were at when the play started. This eliminates any play after the inference which means there is no play at home.

every out at first base that occurs after a batter has hit the ball is a force out since the batter is required to advance to first base.

Blocking the base without having possession of the ball is obstruction, and can result in the runner being awarded the next base.
