You can set a cookie for root level domain if you use a preceding dot. For example, a cookie set for .fuseware.com will be readable at www.fuseware.com, www2.fuseware.com, and so on. If you set a specific cookie for www.fuseware.com, though, only that server can read it.

If www.domain.com sets a cookie, something.domain.com can read it? >> Nope. The domain has to be EXACTLY the same. That is, if they type "domain.com" instead of "www.domain.com", the cookie won't work. That's why it's a good idea to automatically detect and redirect people to "www.domain.com".
