I am pretty sure that can be done.

Yes and No. She can just use the hail button on her mini map (it looks like the starfleet symbol) and accept all her missions there. They must be accepted before she can do them.

(again, totally new to MMOs here)
There are four types of missions when you start the game:

Story missions
Patrol missions
Defend the Sector Blog missions
Exploration missions

You can easily tell them apart. Defend the Sector and Exploration missions are simply level boosting and are repeatable. Story missions tell the story of the game and should be done in order to progress because they give the most experience. Patrol missions don't really add much to the story but are helpful to do.

Its kind of difficult to do that. What you could do is start another character and use that one to play with your friend, while your main character continues to level at your faster pace.

Both of you get the same exact rewards that are listed when you accept the mission.

If you have more questions feel free to send me a message.
