  1. Prohibited to you [for marriage] are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your [milk] mothers who nursed you, your sisters through nursing, your wives' mothers, and your step-daughters under your guardianship [born] of your wives unto whom you have gone in. But if you have not gone in unto them, there is no sin upon you. And [also prohibited are] the wives of your sons who are from your [own] loins, and that you take [in marriage] two sisters simultaneously, except for what has already occurred. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful

    -Other then the specified above is allowed.

    -No one can tell you what will happen in the future, and if someone claims they can, they are liars.

  2. What do you mean step-niece? Do you mean one of the fathers daughters from the other wife? If so, that's not his step-niece, that's his sister! He cannot marry her! If instead you mean the daughter of one of his sisters from the other wife, then again, she is not his step-niece but his actual niece and he cannot marry her, it is haram. Tell your friend to stop lusting after the girls in his own family.

    If I understand you correctly, the man is looking to marry the daughter of his sister? (As they share the same biological father). If so, then as the verse provided by demise says, this would not be permissible.
