I am not an expert, but this question is asked pretty often here.

 

1.  Read the guides See link below

2.  At least a year

3.  No, she will not be able to come with him..

Agreed.

 

Father's proces will take about a year.

This site and the guides has everything to help you with the process.

No, sister will not be able to come with father at that time. She is considered an adult.

I would expect longer than a year, we have AP to factor in.

 

You need to separately sponsor a sister.

To clarify

parent is IR5 category, immediate relative categories cannot bring derivatives (so even if she was a minor it’s still not possible to include her on that petition)

you can sponsor her separately as sibling under F4 category, expect a wait time of 15 years plus before she gets a visa (upside is she can bring derivatives so if she gets a husband and kids by the time her visa is available they can come with)
