  1. I assume you mean DACA . Being approved for DACA does not confer on you the right to petition for a relative to enter the US.

  3. There is no such a thing as a DREAM Act in the active law in the USA. IF you are referring to DACA, it carrying no limitation on your ability to marry and no immigration benefit benefit to that spouse regardless of the nationality.
