Maybe you should post their requirments (instead of your rephrasing of
them). Do they actually want to have different from/to and contact(!) in
one SIP dialog? But AFAIK you don't have such control in Asterisk, you
can only influence the original INVITE and than have Asterisk respond
to a auth challenge, which you can influence with defaultuser according
to sip.conf.

So experiment with something like

and see what the fromuser in request is and what the authentication user
in the Authorization header is in step 3, according to sip.conf remarks
it should be:

From: <sip:fromuser at fromdomain>
Authorization: Digest username="defaultuser"....
