All the camera settings can be seen in the EXIF as above. Iso 100, 1/250th shutter, f1.6 -2/3EV, on a Canon 5D Mk 3 with a Canon 35mm f1/4 L lens.
Processing is another matter.
do you think its had processing

is there any tutorials on how to light photos?
Thousands.
The photo above though is lit by windowlight.

Just a note, to get the same optical look with your crop camera would need a 24mm 1.2 (not an available option) to get similar to 35mm 1.6 on full frame. The 24mm 1.4 is £1400, the Sigma version just £600.

Should I just splash out on a 5d mk III and a nice 35mm lens or persevere with what I have (70d with a kit lens)...

I didn't think the equipment made a difference but it obviously does!

My only mention of the gear was to point out the difference in sensor size as it effects the choice of lens.

There are millions of awesome images shot on much worse cameras than you have, but you might want to start on some lens upgrades. That makes much more difference than a better camera.

It doesnt. As @Phil V said its light and subject thats important.............................and composition. Its knowing what quality and direction of light that makes the subject standout at its best. Its how you frame your subject, include whats important and excludes whats not. Then its about skill, in knowing those things, knowing how they affect your end result and knowing how to use your software back home. Camera lens and setting in themselves are rather unimprotant, its the proces going on between your ears that matters in the decision making that leads to whatever settings you end up with.

Yes. It has a vintage feel to me and that is unlikely to be done straight from the camera.

Your 70D should have no problem in taking photos similar in style, but you'll need to practise and refine your technique with regarding lighting, whether natural light or flash and processing - plenty of tutorials out there on both.

The photographer you are admiring has developed his style over 8+ years, starting off with a modest Canon 500D and has both refined their technique and kit bag as they went along. Simply buying matching equipment won't work.

There are thousands of 'film emulation' plugins for LR etc, and hundreds of tutorials online too.

The downside of that is that the 'experts' have their own recipe's that they're less willing to share. There's no shortcut - watch some tutorials, grab some presets, look at what they do, experiment, tweak and create a look you're happy with.

Or buy a camera with some built in and be happy it took no effort.

I don't know if Nik filters are still free but Googling and taking a look to see if they are costs nothing.

I use Nik a bit, the silver, color and analog filters might be especially worth a look.
