I don't think DIH can read from a triple store today.  It can read from a RDBMS, 
RSS/Atom feeds, URLs, mail servers, maybe others...
Maybe what you should be looking at is the ManifoldCF instead, although I don't 
think it can fetch data from triple stores today either.

I don't follow what you mean by this and how it relates to the first part.

I think you are talking about a custom SearchComponent that reads some data from 
somewhere (e.g. your triple store) and then uses it at search time for 
something.  This sounds doable, although you didn't provide details.  For 
example, we (Sematext) have implemented custom SearchComponents for e-commerce 
customers where frequently-changing information about product availability was 
fetched from external stores and applied to search results.
