The book does not describe how the link is established between a Fae and Trollocs. It's somewhat similar to Aes Sedai and Warder bond considering that if a Fade dies, all linked Trollocs die.

 

The series somewhat contradicts about Trollocs. In early interviews, RJ said there are female Trollocs indicating that they give births. Later, RJ said Trollocs are constructs and that's why they can't go through Travel gateways without dying.

 

I don't think RJ ever wanted to elaborate on Trollocs/Fade ecology. They just breed fast and exists. In reality, how they can even exist such large numbers in the Blight where there are nothing to eat is highly illogical.  Just one of those we just need to accept.

We know that there must be some kind of breeding of Trollocs that happens, because Lan refers to Myrddraal as their near-human throwback offspring.

The "link" appears to be a function of the One Power (or perhaps the True Power), even though they can't channel.  It seems like it's one of the things they can do instinctually - like sensing channeling and traveling via shadow.  And keeping the wind from touching their cloaks (while they're still alive).

 

Most of their powers baffle even the Forsaken, with their (indirect) creator Aginor not being able to figure them out.

All the companion says is they could link with a number of Trollocs, completely overriding their bestial nature and taking control of their minds and wills.  Not mention of how they do it or if they can force it on Trollocs etc.    It also mentions they were also able to control other types of Shadowspawn.
