And just so you know, the old WON network was shut down ages ago. Valve now uses Steam to network it's multiplayer.

In other words, Steam is an absolute requirement if you intend to play online.

Your friend must also register a CD key with Steam, the exact same way you did it. But don't give him your CD key, because you already used it to register your own account.

In short, yes he must have an original HL1/CS copy.

Actually, the COPY is not needed. As long you have a valid cd-key, you are able to validate your cd-key in steam to be able to download HL / CS, etc from the steam menu. Mostly you can get one of course by buying the game in the shop or online, but if you have one at hand and you think its valid, you can always try that out.
