(Domination is the act of controlling or dominating)
Q: What is the difference between dominance and domination ?
A: Both are nouns but I think domination is more "verb-like"

Dominance is a noun used for several situations:

"The boss' dominance made the employees afraid."
"The dominance of a black color is seen in the painting."
"The greater a male lion's dominance, the higher is its chance of breeding a lone female."

Domination: several sentences could be used (close to having an "action" usage)

Q: What is the difference between dominance and domination ?
A: To me, dominance implies an inactive state of something being superior to another thing, whereas domination implies the actual action of something becoming superior to another thing. Since you're insisting on the more active sense (because this is something that is in the process of happening/may happen in the future), I'd use domination.

That said, however, the difference between these two terms is not particularly striking to me, and the use of dominance wouldn't necessarily seem bad. It's just that domination seems a little better.
Q: What is the difference between dominance and predominance ?
A: Predominant might be used more to mean 'more frequent' or 'more common'. e.g. the most predominant colour in this room is beige. However, you could also say the dominant colour in this room is beige - you wouldn't use 'most' in this sentence though
