No, you can't connect his Dropbox to your computer. Instead, you want to share a folder between the two accounts.

He needs me to upload many files to his Dropbox account.  I can't store them in my Dropbox because I'll exceed my storage limit.

 

Can I have his dropbox show up in my Windows Explorer instead of my Drobox so I can just drag and drop files there from my file system??

The only way to do that is if he gave you his credential, and if he did, that's not an account I'd want to do business with.

Ask him to send you a FIle Request instead.
