My daughter lives with a man who has gained permanent custody of his little brother. If something happens to the older brother, would my daughter be able to gain custody of the little boy even if they are not married?

Possibly. The Court generally looks to the best interest of the child - if that ends up being your daughter - it is possible. However, in a custody situation there are numerous factors that would be considered so it is impossible to say with any degree of certainty who would get custody without a lot more information.
