As long as its a Pentax K-mount bayonet adapter. Long ago, Pentax also made M42 screwmount lenses. Tamron made Adaptall adapters for that mount, as well. Even then, a cheap M42-k adapter would let you use it, but there isn't really all that much point in that. In either case, the lens would be manual focus and manual exposure.

The 160 flashes (there were several variants) were relatively small, moderate power auto-flashes that were made, I believe, in the seventies. They should work with a K200, but, again only in manual or flash-controlled auto-mode. They will not work in your camera's P-TTL mode. You can find the manuals and specs for the flashes at Digital Cameras and Accessories - Official PENTAX Imaging Web Site. Click on the support tab and look for downloading manuals and literature.

If the adapter your friend has offered is the PK/A version, grab it. They are expensive and somewhat difficult to find. Grab whatever he's offering anyway if you aren't going to use your Nikon anymore.
