I have a Space Marine Chapter Master that is going to be in reserve. Does his bonus to the army's Leadership apply only after he ports in or is it for the entire fight?
no. the model must be physically on the table and in the battle for any of it's perks to apply
can't have a commander make you braver if he's not there
Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
BGB p84 "Units in reserve are not deployed at the start of the battle, but will become available in later turns of the game." I may be wrong but I believe being off the table prevents the unit from having any effect on the board.
Unless of course, the model/unit has a special rule that allows them to affect the table whilst not on it (e.g. an Eldar Autarch)
Just to give reference to this. This is covered in the BGB FAQ in an obscure place. On page 3 there's a question "Can psychic powers be used from in a vehicle?" (paraphrased). From that we surmise that models have to be on the table to use their powers/upgrades.
