I'm pretty sure it's not possible to link someone elses plusnet domain (www.username.plus.com) to a directory on your webspace because it is fixed within PlusNets systems and databases.

It is only possible to do this with an external or transfered in domain that you own (i.e one you have registered) and then only to a directory on your www webspace - i.e. you can't point a domain to a directory on your cgi webspace yet but this is in development.

For more details see Domains: Setting Up Domain records.

No you can't do what you want.

You might be able to point cgi.domain to your space and cgi2.domain to his cgi space but I don't know if this will work. It depends how the system interperetes it and it may end up pointing both at your own space regardless, try it and let us know!

You can actualy do this, beleive it or not, one part of the old cgi.support.plus.com does this very thing (one guess which part).

However, PlusNet would need to clarify if under there terms and conditions, this is allowed.

I'd think it should be allowed, so long as you aren't reselling the service to your mate. Its a bit like giving someone a mailbox under your account.

You place a symlink from one point in your CGI space, to another point in his CGI space.

This will facilitate the link.

Again, you will need to check if this is allowed with PlusNet. Although in theory there should not be.

The easiest way is probably to create a redirecting frame page to his site by creating a folder in your cgi with your mates name or whatever you want the subdomain to be called, and you save the redirecting frame in this folder as index.htm or index.html

I have added the code needed to do this below just change the relevant details to your own needs. This is how I have redirected my domain name to a subdirectory of my cgi space.
