I commend the sentiment but doubt saying "btw, why don't you give x a promotion too" is the right way to go about it. First of all, your colleague should fight his own battles and if this promotion doesn't put you in an awkward position with him then why is it your concern? Second, if something did put me in an awkward position with a colleague I would talk to my colleague directly rather than to my boss about my colleague. Maybe your colleague doesn't want the promotion (added responsibility, not enough pay to justify, etc). If you want the step up I would 乖 乖 accept the promotion and then raise your issues after. A bird in the hand and all that.

He should see if he can port his company's insurance. There'll be loading, but the corporate agreements usually have a cap as to how much loading they can impose. So then it just becomes a cost vs coverage comparison

If you do follow FIRE, I think you'd have noticed that a big part of the discussion on pre FIRE life is about hustling (generating revenue from multiple income streams so as to maximise your portfolio prior to "RE"). So I would question the limitation that you've included in your question of "either or, not both". I know a number of people pursuing a music career in addition to holding down a full time job in professional services.
