I want to use WFF to setup my farms on IIS 7.5.
As all the requests will go through the controller server to the primary and secondary server if the controller server goes down will this bring down all the farms and all the sites hosted on these farms?

Having two controllers is not a bad idea, but not needed. If you lose your controller, everything will remain up (farm, sites, etc.) Essentially, the controller is just there to 'control' the farm and designate what is primary and what is secondary.

No, I will be having one controller only.
Initially I thought that the traffic will flow through the controller to the servers hosting the sites. But as you said the controller will be there only to control and if goes down it will not effect the sites.
Can you explain me how the HTTP traffic flow will be like ?
