Award Booking for a Friend

I want to make an award booking for a friend of mine as a gift. I would assume I have to make the booking and add his name to the reservation? He happens to be a Plat member which is the same as me. Will he still get breakfast and potential upgrades on an SPG booking? Appreciate any insight.

Yes.

Officially, no. He would have to be the guest of record...meaning his name and SPG number would have to be on the reservation as the primary and not as a guest in the room. But, he can certainly ask at check-in.
