You might want to check to see if it's IMEI locked just Google Apple IMEI lock and ask the seller for the IMEI.
If he ignores you don't buy it as it's properly stolen...

As for the power button the only way you will be able to turn on the device by plugging it in to a power source. And you can enable assistive touch in the accessability menu

Put some rubbing alcohol on it ( rubbing alcohol is covalent so it's safe for iPhones ) and just use an old tooth brush and brush it, then start pressing it like crazy till its loose

The jailbreaking process depends on what ios version you are running on..... For ios 8.1 till 8.1.2 you dont need to put your device into DFU you'll have to install Pangu or Taig(something similar) jailbreak tool and go on with your installiation
So you don't need the power button for the installation and I don't think iPhone 4s freezes (I haven't experience it in these years )
My fears are a bit similar to what iTechy21 told you since the phone is cheap if it has been is stolen and activation lock has enabled you cannot do anything with it and it is also Carrier locked so be carefull while buying it...
And you can get the button repaired for about 10$ (or whichever country your from)I suppose...

You can not jailbreak the latest firmware out. However, depending on what firmware is on the device, you may still be able to jailbreak. (unless it was OTA updated to that firmware, which then you will get bugs)  Just make sure you don't restore the device otherwise you will not be able to! If you reset the device, make sure to do it before you jailbreak.

As for the alcohol, make sure it is pure alcohol, not the stuff you drink (hopefully), more medical/cleaning alcohol. Otherwise you will have conductivity in it and quite possibly short out the device.
