1 or 2 bo cta with barbs

if i use a 1 or 2 bo cta, would it still show as 3/3/3 base standard as a barb when equiped?

If a character gets an oskill bonus to a skill that class "owns," the bonus is restricted to a maximum of +3. If a Barbarian is dual-wielding Call to Arms runeword weapons, the +3 cap is applied to the total from both weapons. This is all intentional, in order to balance these items.
( http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/skills/basics.shtml )

So if you have a cta with +1 or +2 to a skill, it will show as +1 or +2.
3 is the maximum, but lower is okay.

actually for best effect, use a 3bo cta, with the +1 to all skill, it will become +4bo with the cta on hand.
if it is a 2bo cta, it will only be +3bo including the +1 to all skill, so you are better off using an echo weapon for it boost other warcries also.
people use +3bo cta becuase it gives one extra level of battle order than echoing weapon.

From Lorven's post i have understood that bo from cta it is still capped at 3 for barbs even with the 1+ skill. Am i right?

+Battle Orders is capped at 3. However, on a +3 bo CTA, you get +3 Battle Orders and +1 All skills, so total 4. And no, you cannot use another CTA for +8 total, as you are limited to TOTAL +3 Battle Orders, so you will only get the +1 all skills from another CTA.

I don't like CTA + HOTO, which is 7 BO. This limits the skill to shout to be 4. On a pvm, which is what I would most likely use this with, I would want two HOTOs.
