Yes, two players can play with one Xbox Live account. You need to have the "Guest" profile enabled, which is on by default from the console. To make this work, simply have your son join an Xbox Live game, turn on the second controller for his friend, and then have the second controller join the game as listed by the onscreen instructions. It will ask what profile the second player uses, just choose "Guest" and it will allow his friend to play on Xbox Live as well. Malsidius's suggestion will work, but only if that second profile has Xbox Live, so your son's friend would need to pay for Xbox Live, whereas the "Guest" account uses your son's Xbox Live at no additional fee.
