Yep, they will sit a little higher on your rim than your old tires but 15" tires are 15" tires.

Ah, more to it than that, if he put a 265/60/15 on their, he would more than likely have issues with the tire rubbing.

maybe, 265 is in millimeters, which is about 60 mm difference about 2 1/2 inches. If he didn't have the clearance it might be.

Yes, tire sizes are metric. Be mindful that your speedometer may be off though. HTH. - Jim
