If his brother say sorry.
Daniel feel happiness。

If his brother doesn't say sorry.
Daniel feel not happiness.

_____________________

"Happiness" is a noun. After copular verbs like appear, be, become feel, get, look, seem, smell and taste we use adjectives. "Happy" is an adjective. So the sentence is:

- Does Daniel feel happy (now)?


Also, verbs the verb "feel" when referring to physical feelings can be used in simple or progressive tenses without much difference of meaning. So, you could also say:

- Is Daniel feeling happy (now)?

Now, the answers to your specific query:

1. If his brother say sorry.~ Daniel feel happiness。
Say:
- Daniel feels happy. OR Daniel is feeling happy (now).

2. If his brother doesn't say sorry.~ Daniel feel not happiness.
Say:
- Daniel feels unhappy. OR Daniel is feeling unhappy.
- Daniel is not feeling happy.


The expression "not happiness" is wrong.

Exactly so.

"He feels better" is much more natural than any claim of happiness.
