Someone will, of course, correct me, but she'll have to go home for the medical and the interview, even if she is visiting when the petition is approved

Good luck

Correct. The initial petition (not the visa) can be approved while your fiance is visiting you here in the US. However the visa cannot be approved until the interview, which has to take place in his home country (along with the medical exam.)

what if we get married while he is in the states. can we just cancel the previous 1-129f and start new paper work ??

One of the terms of the B2 visa is that, at the time of entry to the US, the alien does not intend to become an immigrant before they leave. Entering the US with the preconceived intent to immigrate is illegal. There's no way USCIS would believe you didn't plan this in advance since you have already filed for a K1 visa. If you try to go this route then you can expect this to be an issue at your AOS interview. It's possible it could result not only in a denial but also in a ban from the United States. The risk may not be great, but why take any risks at all just to try to shave a few months off the process?

Will your fiance be able to get a tourist visa? Being untruthful at a visa interview (regarding his intentions) can have harsh penalties.
