¿Qué pasa ,tío? (Spain) / ¿Qué pasó guey? (Mexico)
Explanation:
The translation of "Dude" varies depending on the hispanic country you are from, since it is a slang term. You could also say ¿Qué tal tío?, ¿Qué tal guey?, although my first suggestion is more accurate.

"¿Que hay de nuevo?, viejo"


Explanation:
As this sentence is pure slang, the translation has to be specific to the intended county (sometimes even the region). So in Mexico it would be translated as "¿Que hay de nuevo?, viejo" (not frequently used but in Bugs Bunny cartoons), "¿Que onda güey?" (widely used in central Mexico but be careful as "Güey" would be a bad word) "¿Que pasa vato?" or "Qüiubole compa" (in northern Mexico), ¿Que pasa tío? in Spain and so on.
It would be better is you post it.
Hope it helps
