It is, you can choose either LH lounge or Star Alliance lounge. Last time I went to LH lounge, because did not have much time and the gate was near the LH lounge.

Yes, you can. And the *A lounge is far superior the windowless cave the LH SEN lounge is.

Star Alliance lounge is far better than SEN, but SEN lounge is close to the gate, and *A lounge is before security, and in addition you need to pass passport control, because it is in non -Schengen zone.

If he's arriving from Cairo, he'll be non-Schengen and non-clean anyway.

Just go through transfer security, not passport control

Thanks for the feedback, so arriving in T1 from extra-Schengen --> clear transfer security --> Star Alliance lounge --> clear passport control --> T1 Schengen departure gates?

There is no need for the OP to clear transfer security in the N/S area in order to go to the *A lounge.
After arrival, the OP should go to the main duty-free area ( which is before security ), take the elevator to Level 10.

So;
Arriving in T1 from extra-Schengen --> Star Alliance lounge --> clear passport control --> T1 Schengen departure gates --> clear security at gate
