The first-generation iPod touch would not have come with iOS 2.x, no. The original user would had to purchase and install it. iOS 2.x only was included with the second-generation iPod touches.
Check the OS on the iPod. I'd wager it's 1.x, in which case your son's friend will have to purchase the update to iOS 3.1 (the 2.x update was removed a long time ago now).
Is it even possible to update the OS on a 1st gen iPod touch to anything 2.0 and up?
Yes, see this: Purchasing iOS 3.1 Software Update for iPod Touch (1st Generation): http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2052
