Is a foreigner, alien or whatever u wanna call, eligible to be a patent agent (apply for exam) and work in the same capacity in US under following circumstances :
 
1. I already have a H1B and  working as a software engineer in NY.
 
2. I am an alien to US and contemplating to apply for H1B after clearing patent agent exam if eligible at all.....

You can appear for the patent bar ONLY IF your current H1b clearly states that you can prosecute patent application before the US Patent office.
 
For all practical purposes, that is possible only if you already work in a IP firm as a technical specialist.  I took this route.

??I thought you had to pass the patent bar before you can prosecute a patent application.  Or do you mean assist in the preparation of a patent application?

I think the poster meant that the job duties as described in the immigration documents  need to include prosecuting applications.
