Does trust override will and is there a way to find out who the trustee is?

My wife is a named beneficiary in her grandmothers will. Her grandmother had a living trust that contained most of the assets. Her mother and uncle were named dual executors of the will. It is not clear they have seen the terms of the trust.
So there are two questions: 1. Do the terms of a trust over-ride any property named to beneficiaries in a will and 2. Is there a way to find out who the trustee is and see the terms of the trust.
It is not clear that anyone has seen the terms of the trust. They had a copy of a will accepted into probate.
