    That question doesn't make any sense. There's no such thing as an "object noun". There are object pronouns- me, him, her, us, them. A noun can function as a subject, the object of a verb, the object of a preposition, etc. So yes, an object is an object. If you're studying another language, there may be different forms of nouns for objects. That's not true about English.

    No. An "object noun" is the noun receiving the action of a verb, not the object of a preposition. 

    If your sentence is, for example, "I took the dog for a walk" then "I" is the subject noun, "dog" is the object noun, "for" is the preposition, and "walk" is the object of the preposition.
