Is "to map" a transitive verb, so that I can say "a mapping b" (a related with b), or an intransitive verb, so that I can say "a mapping with b" or "a is mapped with b" or "a mapping to b"?

It's a transitive verb. But it can be used in more than one form:

He's mapping the island.

She is mapping out a plan for the meeting.

If more than one suffix can be mapped on to the end of a word then the longest is chosen for removal (reference)

A mapping with B can be used but B is not an object in the sentence.

He's mapping with a piece of chalk the whole island.
