Max Triangle II

It's the same problem as max triangle, but with conic sections instead of circle.
First of all the most simple case :

An ellipse with axes on Ox and Oy is defined by two points A and B.
Condition for possibility and uniqueness of this ellipse ? Solution

Find (construct) a point C on this ellipse such as triangle ABC has maximal area.

Conversely, given any point P on the plane, find (construct) two points M and N on this ellipse such as area of PMN maximum

What do you think about the problem on a parabola or hyperbola ?
