Taman Negara AND Melaka in a week, definitely not.
Assuming your friend hasn't seen an Asian city, spend a couple of days in KL (as a hint, you get there a few days earlier and work out what's great/what's not).
Then, take a bus ride to Melaka for a couple of days.
At Melaka, do go on a day trip to Pulau Besar (but, leave early). Tourist boats sometimes leave Melaka (go check out a travel agent when there), but the regular ferry leaves from Anjung (a bit further south). The beaches on the island are really nice, and the voyage over is quaint. Take a picnic lunch and your swimmers.
The trip to Singapore from Melaka is sort of OK. The only place that appeals to me is Muar. But, the town isn't really focussed towards tourism.
Johore Bahru is worth a wander around, and maybe an overnight. The restaurants along the Singapore Straights are good (but not sure whether better than Singapore, just different).
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the advice.
I thought I was being a little ambitious regarding Teman Negara and Melaka.
The trip above doesn't sound too hectic, so should be a great trip!
