You would just change the Workgroup name on each computer and they would not 'see' computers on the other workgroup. I have not set up computers on a server network, but this should work without a problem though you can wait for someone with more network experience to confirm this.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

There are a few kinds of separation. In the most strict sense no amount of hacking or editing of the settings would let the two connect.

I would suggest that you create a single lan for all the official business computers Then use a very limited set or single internet connected one. Then you have to watch out for people using flash drives to spread virus.

If not use something like a firewall or router based on hardware or a software one that can limit based on what you want.
