If a batter reaches base on an error is it an official at bat?

Yes. The only time it is not an official "At Bat", is if a batter reaches base on a base on balls, hit by pitch or catcher interference. A batter is also not charged with an "At Bat" if he hits a sacrifice fly (a fly ball out that results in a runner tagging up and scoring), or a sacrifice bunt that advances a runner or runners. He is also not charged with an "At Bat" if the batter reaches base as a result of an error on a sacrifice fly or sacrifice bunt.

Who covers third if the third baseman is covering home and there is a play at first?

That situation sounds somewhat similar to what is called the rotation play or wheel play in bunt situations. During a bunt situation, usually the first baseman and third baseman cover the bunt while the second baseman will cover first base and the shortstop will cover third base. In the situation you describe it sounds like the shortstop would be the defensive player to cover third base.

What is bunting in softball?

To bunt in softball, you square your body to the pitcher. Once the pitcher releases the bal you try to hit it within 3-4 feet in front of you. Sometimes players bunt the ball to try to get on base. This is called bunting for a hit. Most other times bunting is used to move other runners over to the next base. This is called a sacrifice bunt. If the batter is called out, the at bat is not counted in their batting average. It is counted as a "SAC." A suicide squeeze is another way that the bunt is used. On the release of the pitch the runner at third base runs as if they are stealing the base. The runner at third base is trying to cross the plate before they are tagged out. This is also counted as a SAC if the batter is called out.

Why would the batter bunt?

A bunt is typically designed to advance a base runner. It is most often employed when the infield is playing deep. As a bunt attempt increases the odds of making contact with the ball, bunts are often used by National League pitchers who aren't paid for their skill at the plate. A sacrifice bunt designed to advance a runner from first or second base is generally laid down in the area between the mound and first base - behind the runner. A bunt designed to advance a runner from third base is generally placed between the mound and third base. Bunts can also be attempted for a base hit. A "suicide squeeze" is one of the most exciting plays in baseball. It results when a runner on third base breaks for home on the pitch as the batter attempts a bunt. A bunt made with two strikes that rolls foul is a third strike and the batter is out. This differs from other foul balls.

Where to place a bunted ball with a runner on first?

It depends on what the meaning behind the bunt is, and what side you are batting from. Also the defensive set can be a contributing factor. If its a bunt to get on base you are probably going to put it down the first base line, with the first basemen holding the runner on. For a sacrifice bunt to move the runner, anywhere but directly to the pitcher and fair should do.
