The Twelve Infallible Imams from Ahlul Bayt (AS) did inherit the knowledge of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA). That is why, their status is from his status as Allah says in Quran ذُرِّيّةً بَعْضُها مِن بَعض A Progeny (of the Prophet) which part from him. Their status is higher than everyone except the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) who is The Highest over all creatures.

No share for the deceased son or daughter nor to their children after them as far as they died before their parents. When a person dies leaving his own children, and grandchildren, direct children only have the right to inherit from him as far as they were alive when the parent died. Those who died before their parents have no right in inheritance unless all the children have dies before their parents, then their children will inherit from their grand parents because no direct son or daughter are alive.

No one has any right in inheriting from this man but his own two daughters and his wife if she was alive when he passed away. Wife should  get one eighth and rest should be equally divided between the two daughters. If no wife was alive when he passed away, then all the property and wealth should be dived equally between his two daughters only. No one else from the relatives is entitled for any inheritance from him. This is according to Ahlul Bayt (AS) who have the real teachings of the Prophet (SAWA). Sunni brothers have something different which prevents the daughters and give to other male relatives, which is away from Quran and Real Sunnah.

Raising a child in need who is not your child is a great act of reward and it is a way to Paradise if it is done according to the teachings of Islam. As the child is not your child, there is no inheritance between you and the child, although you are free to give him in your will up to one third of what you leave, and you can gift him during your life whatever you like to gift him.

When the child becomes Baaligh, Hijab is must.

Two thirds of what he left goes to the son, and one third goes to the daughter. This is if he left only one son and one daughter only with out wife. If he left a wife, she gets one eighth, then the remaining should be made in three equal shares, two shares for the son and one share for the daughter.

Her husband gets one quarter. The remaining three quarters goes to the son and daughter who were alive when the woman died. Two shares for the son and one share for the daughter. 
If the daughter had already passed away before her mother, the son will get the three quarters.

If you could not reach to an inheritor, and lost hope in finding him after thorough search, his share must be given to the Marje' of Taqleed and never go to other inheritors unless they have evidence that has died and they have share from him. Marje' of Taqleed is responsible to spend it in charity on behalf of the missing beneficiary.

Wassalam.

The brother and sisters would not inherit because they belong to the second category and as long as any member of the first category exists, members of the second category would not inherit. 

In the case of your question, according to the fatwa of Ayatollah Khamenei, the wife would inherit one eighth of the assets and the rest would be divided equally between the daughters.

According to Fiqh i.e. jurisprudence, a boy has no need to acquire the consent of either of parents, so he can marry any girl even if it is against his parents' consent.
Please bear in mind that I'm not answering according to moral and sociological advice!
As for the second part of your question, we have nothing like that in Islam and as soon as a person dies his/her connection to their possessions is removed and the properties automatically go into the account of the heirs, so if one is going to deprive an heir of getting their properties, they must transfer whatever they have in their lifetime to other people.

The son should keep the respect of his parents in every matter but it is not obligatory on him to get their approval for his marriage. Father's approval is required in the virgin marriage.

Parents are not allowed to abandon their son just because he did not marry according to their wish. Abandoning any relative is a major sin in Islam.

No one is allowed to deprive  his son or daughter from inheritance as far as they are Muslims.

The wife gets one eighth and the the remaining 7/8 must be divided into four equal parts, one part for every daughter and two parts is for the son. This is from the net wealth after paying back all dues on the deceased including the One third.

It is the right of every person to keep one third from all his net wealth after his death to be spent on any aim or person that he wants. This one third can be spent on charity, giving to family or friends or any other lawful purpose.

You can keep a part from that Third to your unmarried daughter which will added on her share from your inheritance.
