I want to get the shiny charm before I go and shiny hunt all the legendaries...can I trade over the legendary and still be able to go to the ring and catch it???

Just a heads up in case you didn't know: several legendaries are shiny locked (meaning the game ensures they are never shiny) in the game. Make sure to research whether whichever legend you want isn't shiny locked before dumping a few days into hunting for it.
I don't think he'll have to worry too much considering the only legendaries shiny locked are Deoxys, Rayquaza, and Groudon/Kyogre. Since these are all story legendaries, I doubt he'll be hunting them.

Yes, you can catch a Legendary even if you already own the same Legendary from another game. For example, if you have a Cresselia transferred over from Black 2, you can still catch Cresselia in ORAS.
