Can a lease holder evict a non lease tenant from their property?

I am presuming we have three components here: a landlord, a tenant, and a subtenant. The landlord in this case is presumably renting to a tenant, while the tenant is presumably renting to a subtenant. I presume that tenant has a lease while the subtenant doesn't. The tenant becomes the landlord for the subtenant. Since there is no lease (in most states subletting does not involve a lease) in this case, the tenant who is the subtenant landlord can evict the subtenant. While the main landlord can evict the tenant -which automatically evicts the subtenant -only the tenant can evict the subtenant. But the main landlord can evict all by evicting the tenant.

Can a landlord evict a tenanter after filing a chapter 7?

Normally the bankruptcy filing has nothing to do with whether or not the tenant has paid his rent. A landlord does not have the right to evict a tenant simply because the tenant filed chapter 7 unless that is part of the lease. The terms of the lease determine if the tenant will be evicted. If the tenant pays the rent, he should not be evicted.

He could, but it depends on the wording of the lease. Normally there is only one tenant on a lease: the rest of the legal occupants are considered part of the household. A landlord can kick out the one tenant and create a new lease for another occupant, making him the tenant.
