Shabbat Rules

My friend observes shabbat more than I do and is sometimes excluded from group activities/events. I have some questions about permissibility to see how I can make plans more inclusive for him. He identifies as modern orthodox, but, I assume due to a series of negative experiences in the past, is reluctant to answer questions about observance.

Can he light candles outside such as at a beach? I want to say yes so long as he has some cover which I can make with tarps.

Can he be a passenger in my car? I believe not due to the additional exertion.

Can he camp in a tent? I believe so, so long as I assemble it.

Can he carry candles from inside a tent to outside of the tent for lighting them? I believe so since it is a short number of steps.
