Is the runner out if the first baseman drops the ball but then places his other hand over the ball while the ball is lying on the ground before the runner reaches first base.?

The first baseman must "have control of the ball". If his hand is on it pinning it to the ground, the call is safe. If he picks it up or in any other way, shows he/she has "control" of the ball, the call is out.

Can the third baseman be called for a balk like the first baseman?

Rule 8.05 makes it clear that only a pitcher's actions can result in a balk. Rule 4.03 states that all fielders -- not just the first baseman -- must have both feet in fair territory at the start of the pitch, but penalties are not specified in this rule. An umpire could issue a warning, an ejection, maybe even call a balk if the pitcher made a pitch with a fielder there. But it would STILL be a balk on the pitcher.
