    No, he can use the same shared IP.

    You do not need a dedicated IP address to make a reseller account. You can designate an IP address to be a reseller's main shared IP address, but this is optional, not required. You can host resellers with only one IP address on the server.

    No. host.name.com is for the server.
    No. He does not need a dedicated IP, he can use yours at his domain name registrar when he creates his own nameservers.

    ok , my dedicated hostname is mydomain.com and my nameservers are ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com, he will need to change his domain dns setting at the registrar to ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com for his main domain, then he can have his own ns.hisdomain.com ? will i need to add this ns.hisdomain.com somewhere in whm ? thanks a lot for your patience

    The documentation on this topic can explain things for you pretty good I think. Certainly worth a peek:
    Understanding Reseller Accounts - cPanel Documentation
    Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges - cPanel Documentation


    No. He'll need to change them to ns1.HISdomain.com


    Yes. You can read all about that on the second link, just above.

    You're welcome. The docs are your friend, take them out to lunch and get a sandwich. :)
