I don’t work with CCNx daemon, but with NFD daemon each of your threads can register its own individual name like
I didn’t understand question b), but you can have intra-process communication with Interest and Data packets in NFD.
Regarding ndnSIM, in normal mode, its core works in a single thread, and it’s not that trivial to make your simulation scenario run in multiple-threads.
You can refer to general NS-3 documentation for help.
To find some information about “pushing” you can find the section talking about "Command Interests" in NFD developers guide.

Consider a scenario where an application is having three threads (logical processes) running on three nodes (three processors of a single node). Now, if these three processes want to communicate with each other for a certain reason. How can I achieve the same in CCN, i.e., (a) how processes can refer to each other (NAMING CONCERN) (b) will the format of Interest and Data packets will be same as that of current packet structure in CCN/NDN. Since, these communication messages might be very short like Hello packets or status request of a node.

Furthermore, I would like to mention that I want do this in ndnSIM. Currently, is there any support (libraries) in ndnSIM for doing this.
