If your brother's wife and children are immune to HepB, they will be negative with HepB even though your brother has HepB.

Yes, while your brother is infected he can give the disease to others.  That doesn't mean he definitely will.  But caution should be exercised if he is in the acute phase especially.  

His family should be vaccinated if they haven't been already.

Why do you assume that the person got HepB from playing around?

Don't assume that.  The majority of chronic HepB has nothing to do with "playing around".
