If you mean the CGFNS exam then yes it can be used for VSC. He doesn't get it automatically he has to apply for it and pay any fees that CGFNS require

Not sure, something he would have to check with CGFNS. They may have something written on their website in the FAQ

CGFNS can use information already received but English exam must be current, if expired then he must do it again. Better to check with CGFNS
