Your half sister is still your sister, there is no discrimination for half siblings, so yes, you can petition for her if all the other requirements are met. The fact that your mother died when you were little does not change anything. However, waiting times for siblings are very long, so you should be patient to reunite with your sister.
No problem. You can apply for her, though it will take many years.

The laws of immigration consider a half sister your sister but you can only petition her if you are a United States Citizen. That opportunity isn't available for US green card holders.
