Search this site for multiple posting very similar to yours. Most of the answers to your questions are pretty much posted in one thread or another.

This reads like a telegram. Is it still possible to send one?

He needs to be married for a year before he is eligible.

However, following cases would be referred to MHA, New Delhi for extension and visa conversion -
(A) Tourist visa may be converted to ‘X’ visa, if a foreigner who has come to India on ‘Tourist’ visa marries
an Indian national during the validity of his/her Tourist visa.
Such conversion would be considered subject to
fulfillment of following conditions:
(i) submission of a copy of registered Marriage Certificate, and (ii) report from the concerned local Police
station about their marital status which will inter-alia include his/her antecedents, confirmation about their
living together and security clearance.

Yes. And then a PIO will provide permanent solution for 15 years.

Few friends of mine tried - it was SO painful and time consuming, finally they decided just to leave a country and get X visa by normal way. The Trap is here: "his/her antecedents, confirmation about their living together and security clearance" means to obtain and collect A LOT of papers.

It is only meant for people who come on
  • A shoestring welfare check budget, or
  • Live further away than Mars and burdensome to go back so far, or
  • Are from countries more restrictive than Former-Iron-Curtain, or
  • Spiritually, and on Yogic-Karmic grounds cannot leave India,
hence this option has been instituted on compassionate grounds. Certainly those that do not fall in the above categories, do go back home and come back with a shiny Entry(X) Visa.

Some newly-married people have had relatively-easy success in converting Tourist to X. I'm one of the ones that didn't (although I blame a useless agent) and I found it quick and easy back in my mother country.
