Had to abort my Camino in 2015 when I fell and broke some bones. Want to pick it back up at Villa Franca del Bierzo in 2017. Will I be able to continue using the 2015 credential? Will my friend be able to get a credential in Villa Franca?

Some but not all, and other routes too.
Yes you will be able to continue with your credential from 2015, I'm not sure about getting a new one for your friend in Villa Franca, but don't worry the answer to that question will come from someone shortly.

You can get a credential in Villafranca del Bierzo at several places including the albergue de Ave Fenix which is open all year. You need not stay in the albergue in order to obtain a credential.

For more info see this Gronze list in Spanish of Villafranca lodgings and their services.
