Is common to see big companies as Frommers in local search result, some booking sites does the same thing.

Do they do that job only to get the link "more from" as a reward?

And what is necessary to become one of those reviewers?
Do they have a special agreement with Google or what?

Companies like that have a contract with G Maps to supply data feeds. Usually it is G that approaches a potential partner.

So no chances for medium and small companies to become one right?

Google doesn't trust small businesses so the only chance you'll have as one with them is to buy their services.

By taking feeds from major market leader, Google also builds it own database that a small/medium company would not have.

Also, Google assumes that a Big Brand would have better(relevant) data (they have to protect their brand image) than other companies which might have only fake/spam/irrelevant data.

I don't think Google like the buying services to reviewers even if they want to sell the service so I don't see a way.
