Just use free flight. The multiplayer area in FSX is completely different, and not compatible with FSHost.

OK as long as they join the fshost client and go to the same airport then we will be able to fly together?

As long as they connect to your FSHost session, either directly with FS2002 or FS2004, or via FSHostClient if they're using FSX, FSX:SE, or Prepar3d, then yes, you should be able to see each other if you're near each other in the sim. Each person in the session needs to setup their port forwarding and test their network using FSPortTest.

Is there a way they do not have to port forward?

No, sorry. It's part of the way Microsoft Flight Simulator works.
