Indeed, his “First Communion” was the first time he received Communion. Catholics usually have a formal “First Communion” that is preceded by preparation so that they understand the nature of the Eucharist and how and why we celebrate Mass. Usually, this is done at about the age of 7. (It used to be the case that you had to be 14, but after a miracle involving Blessed Imelda Lambertini, the Church decided that it was appropriate for younger children to receive Our Lord, as long as they were able to understand what the Eucharist is all about.) The Church uses age 7 as the “normal” age at which to prepare children for First Confession and First Communion because that is defined as the “age of reason”, the age at which children are capable of being held accountable for their own actions. Confirmation in the western Church is usually administered somewhere around age 11-16, depending on the child. (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist are the three sacraments of initiation - the sacraments by which one enters the Catholic faith. In the early Church they were often administered together, and still are in some eastern rites. However, in the Latin rite Confirmation is usually administered by the bishop, at least for children, and as the early Church began to grow it often became quite difficult for the bishop to get around his entire diocese to confirm all the candidates. In some cases, it took several years. This is why the Latin rite has chosen to make the sacraments separate for children, though adults who become Catholic receive Baptism (if they have not already had a valid Trinitarian Baptism), First Eucharist, and Confirmation in one ceremony administered by the priest.)
In terms of Confirmation, indeed, he should see his local pastor about the Confirmation process. Often, parishes will require that unconfirmed adult Catholics join the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults - a program for adults who wish to become Catholic), although it is generally recommended that a specific program designed around understanding Confirmation be available for adult candidates. I suspect that most parishes simply ask adult candidates to join the RCIA program due to the fact that there likely are not many Catholics who were not confirmed as children, and thus demand for such a program would be low.
