    You can either use RSDLite to push the SPRecovery SBF to her phone and go from there or you can use Easy Root and install ROM Manager from the market to flash SPRecovery or ClockworkMOD Recovery onto the phone. At that point you should probably ditch ROM Manager unless you're tech savvy because it's not playing well with FroYo at the moment.

    Yup. RSDLite still flashes stuff the way it used to. There was some confusion for a while there but a few people having issues with the update proved that Motorola didn't plug up the works with the update.

    Of course, since this is basically exactly the software the techs over at Verizon Wireless would use to push software to the phones, it would have been a Bad Thing for them to have done so.

    All that flashing the SPRecovery image onto the phone affects is the recovery image. As such it bypasses the rest of the phone, so her not being rooted isn't a problem. I've heard of one user having difficulty flashing it on after updating to the latest version of the OTA update, but only one, and many more having zero difficulty.

    Okay, let's try this simply. Yes, it'll work unless there's an act of God or serious user error.
