I am grateful to your for giving me right advises at right time.
Answer:

Your step father is not like your own father. However, as he is your mother's husband and father of your brother and sister, you owe him respect. His son and daughter born of your mother are your brother and sister. You are a mahram to the sister, even though you have different fathers.

As far as your future wife is concerned, your stepfather is not considered a mahram to her. Therefore, she needs to observe full hijab in front of him; likewise, all other restrictions of interaction between males and females also apply. The reason is: in case, Allah forbids, if you were to divorce your wife, there is no marriage barrier between your step father and her.
