General rule is that it's not allowed. Since you're not the one who booked it and not primary on it, the diamond waived resort fee shouldn't apply to your friend/room. No different than any other hotel program, or really any loyalty program. (ie; Hyatt, Discoverist booking room and Globalist is staying with them. Not going to receive Glob benefits.) Now, it doesn't mean the FD agent won't waive it if they see your name is added to the room. It's a hit or miss. That's why you received mixed answers. But I wouldn't expect it to be the norm if they happen to waive the resort fees. YMMV.

For future reference, the correct way to do it would be during the booking process. You can add a 2nd CR/TR number to the search to lower pricing or maybe get the room comp'd. This ensures your player number/benefits is tied to the reservation.

Side note: I believe you posted on VMB right? Think I saw your post there.
