He fights for custody.
No, unless the baby's biological father relenquishes his parental rights, he would get custody of the child if the mother dies, not her husband. The biological father must sign his rights away to the mother's husband.
Unless the biological father has relinquished custody, he can ask the court to grabt custody in case the mother dies or cannot take care of herself.
No he does not.
The childs' father, married or not. Your relationship to the father is irrelevent. The father is the first on a long list of family members. Create a living will if that is not acceptable.

Yes, she can. All she has to do is press suit to have custody awarded, or convince him to give her custody.

Marriage by itself does not bring custody rights to non-biological children. Where the children go when the biological mother dies depends on who has custody, whether the non-biological father has adopted the child, whether the biological father wants the child, and on the laws of the state where all of this is happening.
Yes. If the biological parents are fit the court will give them custody first.
Depends on the circumstances, to the father, to the state, and was her parent rights suspended?
If the child has been residing with the step-father for x amount of time he may be able to get physical custody of the child unless the biological father wants to take the physical custody than he can get visitation.
If the biological father is known and still has his parental rights he have to give them up in order for the stepdad to be allowed to apply for adoption.
Do you have a court order saying you have visitation? Are you the biological father? If so then YES. Go back to court and file for custody.
Yes, he is still the father. It's just that the child is not living with him.
In most states, the biological mother receives presumptive custody unless and until modified by court order.
Guardianship, provided father does not have First Right of Refusal. Even without it, he can file a challenge for custody.
