What is the "Defensive Diamond"?

Situation: There are zero outs, there is a runner on 1st, and a runner on 3rd. A ball is kicked into the air and bounces off a outfielder. The runner on 1st then leaves leaves 1st base toward 2nd. The outfielder then catches the ball without it ever touching the ground. Then the runner on 3rd base leaves 3rd toward home. The ball is thrown to and controlled by the pitcher before either runner reaches their next base. The pitcher immediately takes the ball to tag 1st base. The runner that was at 1st before the play is now stopped on 2nd base, and the runner that was on 3rd base has crossed the home place. So, how many outs are there after the play ends?

Situation: There is a baserunner at 1st base. A line drive is kicked by the kicking player. The baserunner on first starts running to 2nd base, then sees the shortstop make a diving catch of the ball, they then run back and touch 1st base and start running to 2nd as the pitcher receives a throw from the shortstop. The base runner then stops and goes back to 1st base. The pitcher then throws the ball to 1st in order to try and get the runner out before they reach 1st base safely. Can the defense get a Force Out at 1st base?
