no, there are no derivatives on parents petitions

she will have to leave him behind, she can petition for him when she get's here, but it will take 2 or more years,

she has to petition him right away so he can get his visa before he turns 21, if not it will take a very long time until he get's the visa

No he can;t be added. The process mentioned above is the quickest- the USC brother could also petition, but that would take a long time.
