Is there any firewall feature present in the current openstack environment, other than nova security groups? If yes, where can i find such commands (or tutorial). And if not, how can i add a firewall into the openstack environment?

No, not in Grizzly, but it is being developed in Havana (

I think it should be possible to connect isolated networks with an instance connected to each one that acts as a router/firewall - instead of a Quantum router. And push out host routes with DHCP so instances on different nets can reach each other via the router/firewall instance.
