Is a Nikkor 70-300mm lens compatible with a Nikon D3300?

Your friend is wrong. You don't have to get a 55-something telephoto zoom, unless you don't want a gap in focal length coverage. A lot of us would say that the 55-75mm range probably doesn't matter, ...

Are lens caps compatible between Nikon/Canon?

If the lens caps weren't compatible, filters also wouldn't be compatible. So yes, the thread specs are the same between lens manufacturers. Only the diameter of the filter mount / lens cap varies.

Can I use the Canon 55-250mm lens on my Nikon D5200 body?

No, you can't. In general, lenses made for one brand can't fit on another brand without an adapter, and in this case, there are no good options. Using a "naive" mechanical adapter would end you up ...

Having trouble figuring out what lens will fit my Nikon D3100

Yes, it will fit, but AF won't work (all D lenses rely on an AF motor in the camera body and the D3100 doesn't have one), so if you buy it, you'll only able to use it as a manual focus lens.
