Salam alaikun, we can fast for our parents that have past on, if is that they promise Allah that they ar going to fast some fasting. There was a sawhaba who his mother declare she his goin to perform hajj for a particular year but she pass away b4 that time, so the prophet told him that if she is owing wont he pay 4 her debt , then she should do the hajj 4 her because Allah is goin to question her on it on judgement day. ALLAH knows best

You can't fast or go to Haj for any person. It's clear in the Quran. When a person dies, the file is closed and what he or she missed to do alive Allah is the only one to judge.
