You like parroting other posters, don't you?

"Knowing a situation" does not mean he is a witness.

Thank you.
Your friend can appear as a witness if he or she also knows the situation. He can do a lot of the talking as a witness.

No. If you can't speak then you'll have to hire an attorney.

Only a licensed attorney can represent you.
