Hi!

Can I speak in other player's turn, telling him about role of another player or give him suggestions to avoid another player victory?

I didn't find nothing about it in the rulebook, but I think it's an important rule to specify.

If it's not stated as illegal in the rulebook, it's allowed.

You can also bluff people by convincing them of incorrect info to assure your own victory.

But there is nothing against saying, "Brian, you need to swap or not with Russ or he will claim king and win on his next turn!"

I would say that the fact that the boocklet doesn't say anything about it doesn't automatically mean that it is allowed to speak. I take it to mean that the players should agree before each game whether they will be allowed speak or not. It is good to alternate both ways and have different experiences of Mascarade.

Why do I need to swap? And who is this Russ character, anyway?

A longtime friend and he has the king and 10 coins. He must be stopped and you are the last player to act before his turn!
You must stop him!

We houserule a strict no interference rule when it comes to other players' actions. It was after one player said that they'd only challenge another player's claim if no other player was planning to challenge, which then led to some players discussing which of them would be the sole one to challenge and collectively deciding who had the best shot of having the required card. It all felt a little bit like it was taking away from the game's design.
