A: Wait 10 years or do a hardship waiver. It would be best to contact an immigration attorney to discuss specifics.

A: Based on the facts alleged, your fiancé would be subject to the 10 year bar. To lift that bar, you would need to file a waiver. When did he return to his country? Discuss fully with counsel.
