I have not flown any OW carrier in the past four years, since I moved over to SkyTeam. Before I had status with CX about six years ago, that airline did not allow any access to the Business Lounge if on a purchased Y/PEY ticket, that was upgraded to business.

I have not had any Asiamiles activity so my miles are expiring this April.
I am not aware of any cross airline upgrade scheme with Asiamiles / JL. Anyway upgrades are not guaranteed.
Some airlines do not allow lounge access on upgrade, especially when done at check in, as they only look at the base fare (Y/PE)

New Asiamiles now do not expire. "Old" Asiamiles can made non expiring for a $ fee.
Asia Miles - no expiry as long as there is activity every 18 months
