Question
Is it possible to sponsor a very close friend on visit to US... Just for visit.... And what are the possibilities for approval of visa.

Answer
Saima,
Yes, you could sponsor someone who was going to visit the US.  The possibilities are great for success as long as the consular officer believes that your friend does not have any immigrant intent and will return to their country of origin. You can show this by the person maintaining an address in their home country, maintaining a job and having family members and other reasons to return.
Good Luck
