Almost universally each engine provides its own GUI libraries so no game companies don't use 3rd part UI libraries.

Extremely untrue, a lot of companies use scaleform or their own flash interpreter for their UI. There are also a few other 3rd party frontend options out there.

What do you mean? Can you make a UI that looks and feels like the UI in WoW using an existing third party library? Yes you can.
