Sorry David, hard to read what you posted, maybe you should get a new keyboard . If you are saying that your friend got the H1B and you are asking if somebody else can go in his place, then the answer is no.
The H1B is issued to a specific person, not to a position. The sponsoring company has to file a new petition for you/friends.
dear ranchers My sigle and simple question and doubt is A H1B Visa holder in India he not yet visited USA with this visa now, can he change the employer in H1B visa from India? that means H1B transfer is it possible.
