duo queueing with another player from higher tier is elo boosting?

Well in theory. But I seem to vaguely recall something about the behind the scenes calculations of LP gain preventing duo que from higher tier easily dragging you up. I am not clear on details, but I think that if you que with someone who has much higher/lower hidden MMR, the discrepancy drastically slows your LP gain ratio.

But as I said, me recollection of that is pretty hazy.

Like others said: If he logs on your account and plays, that's elo boosting.

But you are permitted to duoQ with him, but remember, if you happen to lose a game, he will lose a million LP.

Be careful of what you wish. If you get carried too high, you might find yourself stomped every single game but unable to fall down in tiers. Even when you catch up in skill, your mmr will be so low that progress will seem impossible.
