I am wondering how can I adjust geometry parameters (or using other packages) to make the layout of footnote taking the width of BOTH body and margin note.

Layout

Thanks,

It can be done, provided you use only onesided typesetting, or footnotes on left hand pages will appear as hanging from nowhere.

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\usepackage{etoolbox}
\makeatletter
\patchcmd\@footnotetext
  {\hsize\columnwidth}
  {\hsize\columnwidth\advance\hsize\marginparsep\advance\hsize\marginparwidth}
  {}{}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
a\footnote{\lipsum*[3]}\marginpar{Aaa bb cc dd ee ff gg hh ii jj kk ll mm nn}
\lipsum[1-10]
\end{document}

I find that the result shows just one thing: keep away!
