Who Qualifies for a lung transplant recipient

My father has Renal Carcinoma Cancer that has spread to his lungs.  He has been given 1 to 3 months before his lungs will be totally filled with the cancer and will not be able to function.  Does he qualify for a lung transplant?  Can he receive part of a lung from a live donor? Can a donor or a recipient live on one lung?
