I have a 50 amp post at my house that I plug my RV into ... My neighbor is allowing a mutual friend to "store" hid RV there for about 2 months, or until his driveway expansion is completed.

My neighbor has no outlets close to the rear of his house....

Is there such a thing as - -
50amp male to 50 amp AND 15 amp both female ? This way he can plug in and run his fridge before a trip using a HD extension cord, and I can continue to plug in by using my 50 amp plug...

I do not need 50 amp, if using it here, I only run 1 AC and my residential fridge .. nothing else..

Sure. The neighbor's friend just plugs into an outlet on your RV.

This will split into 2 50s, then you can adapt your way down.

Probably the simplest and most foolproof as long as he isn't using any heavy draw items.

If you do it like you asked you need to add fuse/breaker from the 50 amp to 15 amp.
By having the friend plug into your RV then that is taken care of in your panel.

That is good for battery, lights, furnace, tv, charge small items.

Tell him to run the fridge and water on propane. No air, no microwave.

Fridge on electric should be okay; it's about a 300W element, not an especially heavy current, at least not when compared with a microwave or air conditioner or water heater. (That's for an RV absorption fridge; of course with a residential fridge electric is the only option.)
