My buddy has been squawking about a combo and I just want to make sure he does it right

Lord of the feast gets 360 from Argus and Electroleap from Kreuger. When he makes all his simo-attacks, does the electroleap resolve before or after models are removed for initial attack?

Electro leap is on hit, so it triggers and resolves before damage is calculated.

OK, so does Lord of the feast get souls from electroleap, If not, do you resolve death from sword or electro first

I don't know what the soul gathering mechanic is on the Lord of the Feast, but your second question is answered by my first post.

Hits with sword -> E-leaps trigger -> e-leaps resolve -> damage from sword.

Heart Eater grants corpse tokens from melee attacks.
Electro Leap is not a melee attack.

LotF get corpse tokens when he destroys enemies with melee attacks, so no, he will not get them from enemies killed by Electro Leap, since it isn't an attack.
Moral of the story - don't cast Lightning Tendrils on LotF, he has reach anyways.

Well, first, you can potentially clear out a much wider ring (instead of everything within 2", it's everything within 2" + base width + slightly less than 2" (so the eleap target is closer than the LotF).

Second, as I understand the wording, the attacks aren't simultaneous, though I could be wrong (don't have the book for tactical tip refs).

Are there any models in the game with thresher, that have access to electroleap? Are some of the attacks "more simultaneous" than others?

You're probably not going to clear out more than 2" as the electroleap targets are probably going to be models you were going to hit anyways with the exception of maybe the last one.

Electroleap doesn't leap back onto the attacker.

Oh, is it just that it can still leap to members of the attacking unit?

LotF is simo, question has been answered from what I can tell.

Yes, that is correct.
