If you are over 21, then yes, you can petition him. He may or may not be able to complete the process in the US.

You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.

You can file for him but would have to file a provisional waiver of his time here unlawfully. Consult an experienced attorney to advise you.

If you are over 21, you may petition for your father. He may be eligible to adjust status here in the United States and not have to go through with consulate processing in his native country. You should contact an attorney to go over specifics.

Yes you can file for your dad if you are at least 21 years old. He may not be sent back to his country and may not need a waiver either as he is an immediate relative of a US citizen with a legal entry to the US. You should hire an attorney to help though.
