How to set up an http proxy server


I need to set up my network so that my friend in another country can input my hostname (associated with my IP address) into their browser, and be able to use my internet to browse, like a proxy. How can I set this up?

well you need to pick a proxy, like squid, and read it's standard documentation. Alternatively if they can handle a *little* more on their end, just use sshd on your end to provide a socks proxy with no special work other than external ssh access.
