In which case do the center of buoyancy center of gravity coincide for a body with uniform density. Would it be completely submerged or just immersed

I'm not sure how you are defining "coincide", but the following applies to the relative locations of the center of gravity (CG) and center of buoyancy (CB). For a body and liquid of uniform ...

Body submerged in two liquids

It doesn't apply upthrust directly. It does it by adding pressure to the water surface, thereby increasing the upward force that the water exerts at the bottom.
