Hi there @sandrois9,
I beleive that in order to play tModloader, the account holder needs to own Terraria - access through Steam family share is not enough.
If you do buy your son a copy on his account, his saves will be fine and perfectly playable. Do note though that you cannot use 1.4...
Question of the Day 364:
If there was one small, low value item that you could have for free once a week, what would it be?
Thanks for having me @Buffling, and happy anniversary to Question of the Day!
Mods are not coming to Console or Mobile any time soon, the reason being that the owners of the platforms (Microsoft, Sony, Google, Apple etc) require all apps/games to be reviewed and tested before they are run on their platform. Some are more strict than others - even updates must be tested...
Currently, there is no supported legal way to obtain older versions of the game.
Some people who own the game on GOG may have backed up older version installers for their own personal use, but if you did not do this at the time then you are unable to get these older versions (as far as I know).
