If you're asking about a product change, I don't think it's possible. If you're asking about popcorn, nowadays it seems like pretty much anything can turn into PC.

If I open a chase Hyatt Card before the end of the year...will I get 2 Free nights + 1 Free  Annual Night (for 2016) and an additional 1 Free night for 2017? Or does the 2016 free annual night expire at the end of the year?

The annual night posts at the anniversary date, so you'd get the bonus and then have a year to go before the first free night.

The $25K annual cap for the 5% cash back on Chase ink, goes by posting date or statement date?

I'm planning on applying for another Ink soon, should I close my current account first (also getting hit with AF now, they offered $50 to keep open) or wait and offer to switch CL?

You can have multiple.

I'm aware of that, but which way would increase approval chances?

Not worth it, you probably won't be able to upgrade back up, I would keep it and try to get another.

That would depend on if he plans to max the 50k on both cards.
