Kelli Y Allen's answer Please recommend that your friend contact an experienced immigration lawyer. She will need to file a spousal visa petition, but the specifics depend upon several factors such as: whether he entered the U.S. with a visa, how long he was here without legal status, whether he entered he U.S. more than once, whether he was ordered removed or left voluntarily.

Hector E. Quiroga's answer There is some liability for an attorney to even review forms they’ve not completed; if something goes wrong, they could be held liable. It is thus unlikely that anyone would be willing to review them for free. You might try a non-profit agency that works with refugees and immigrants.
Carl Shusterman's answer The I-193 is an application for waiver of passport and/or visa. It is to be used by a person who is a legal resident of the United States, to re-enter the United States without the person's passport and/or visa.
If your mother is not currently in the US, you can file an I-130 on her behalf, but she can not file an I-485 from abroad.
