Can I use assists when I block one of my own players with the ball & chain to get more dices ?

My gut feeling is that you can't.
Ball & Chain wrote:
If during his Move Action he would move into an occupied square then the player will throw a block following normal blocking rules against whoever is in that square, friend or foe

Assists wrote:
In order to make an assist, the player:
1. Must be adjacent to the enemy player involved in the block

So while normal rules apply for the block against your own team, to assist your player must be adjacent to an enemy player. In the case of blocking a friendly player, this is not the case and so they cannot assist.

Absolutely correct, Vanguard.
Assist can only be given against enemy players.
The proper rules have been quoted for this.

And is it possible to help an enemy ?

For exemple, my opponent block his goblin with his ball&chain. He get 3 dices.
Can I use my players to assist against the ball&chain and reduce the nomber of block dices ?

LRB 6, page 21 wrote:
The attacking coach must declare if any of his players will give an assist first, then the defending coach must add defensive assists with players from his team.

According to this part of the rules, you actually can refuse to assist the block wih adjacent players although they are eligible to do so.
So yes, if the three dice block came from assists, you can reduce it by not assisting.

Again, you cannot assist players from the other team.
