If you have been undocumented for more than 180 days and you have managed to file for adjustment of status, I recommend that you do not request an advance parole document. You can travel abroad once you have received your permanent resident status.
No, if the person does not have status or authorization to stay in the US, the person can't ask for permission to re-enter the US to remain without status. They're already breaking the law by being in the US without status. Filing a 131 will only alert the government of the person's presence.
Based on the brief information you shared, it seems that she would be eligible for a passport. That said, you should contact an experienced immigration attorney to provide further information and discuss.

You can do a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the I 130 and for any documents that you signed, but you will not be entitled to a copy of the documents she signed, such as the I 485, Application for Employment Authorization or Application for Advanced Parole, as those belong to her.

You will not fall out of status when you quit school if your I-485 application is pending. It shouldn’t matter if you quit or not. We recommend that you keep the designated school official apprised of your plans.
This may pose a challenge but the good news is she may qualify for a waiver of inadmissibility if the drug possession was simple and was a one time thing. Discuss with counsel. Counsel anywhere in the USA can represent you.
More information is needed. It is important that you do not confuse the USCIS when completing your form. As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any unnecessary complications. Good luck.
