First question - Who decides if a game will be free on PS+?

And what are the benefits to the game's developer and publisher?

Nothing on PS+ is "free".

Why? Because **** you is why.

For a short time, many PlayStation 3 owners aren't paying money for the game. How does this help the company?

It's called exposer.

People see a game offered, if they play it and like it, they will be more willing to buy the game outright, pay for additional DLC, support further games from the company.

How hard is this to understand?

You are hallucinating. Seek help immediately.

Sony enters into an agreement with them on other items sold... such as avatars,tthemes, dlc and what have you. They are given all proceeds from that. I learned that from the way forward interview on double dragon neon.

It's probable that Sony gives the company a kickback as incentive.

I got WH40k Space Marine for free. I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the Horde Mode and so did my friend. We both purchased the "Chaos Unleashed" horde mode DLC.

Also, if a sequel is about to come out / just came out. (IE: Saints Row 3) then the previous installment (in this case, Saints Row 2) is released to help drum up sales.

Also Sony just released around 8 games for VITA. Including their AAA title "Uncharted: Golden Abyss" which they hope will drum up sales of VITA consoles.
