Any answers to his questions would help as well. He doesn't have an account here, but lurks.
Like others said, try craigslist or Play It Again if there's one in the area. There's no shame in used gear and once the kid starts playing, I'm sure some of his teammates will have old stuff for him to take/buy. The hard part is getting involved in the first place.

I would recommend paying for new skates, though. Everything else can be second hand.
