Doesn't that mean that we have to have the FreeIPA servers on their own DNS domain again? So we can't have linux-server.company.com and windows-server.company.com (managed by FreeIPA and AD respectively) because there has to be a SOA for .company.com somewhere and that is already managed by AD (in our environment). Also, thanks for your other answers.

If you mean that IPA user accounts can operate in the Windows domain, the answer is technicaly yes, although because we do not expose (yet) a Global Catalog to the Windows AD servers, it will be hard to set ACLs on the Windows side to actually authorize freeIPA users to login to AD managed computers (it can probably be done via CLI, but not through AD administrative UIs). We plan to fix this in the near future by providing a GC service.
