If it's a non-EU passport and no valid visa (or bio card) stamped on passport then I really doubt any airline would even carry him/her! If there is valid visa then it shouldn't be a problem

You can not apply for your wife. It will be application from your wife (as spouse of BC when you take oath)

You can't apply before 1st of November. There is no grace period for BC application so you can apply exactly after 12 months on ILR.
