Through the link below you will find that you (and Egyptians) need to apply for a regular visa: http://cibtvisas.nl/ (which is available in English). The link below, however, states that you can apply for a transit visa: http://in.vfsglobal.co.uk/Transit.html Either way, you need to apply for a visa well in advance.
I ask the staff of Emirates in Dubai and they say ok
Cheapest there are the buses by Terravision and a couple of other bus companies. If you book in advance you can get a one-way for as cheap as 4€. For info and booking see the Terravision website. It takes 55 minutes. Note that here you are not flexible with your departure time. Buying tickets at the booth is possible but at higher prices and may sell out, ...
According to Wikivoyage, the cheapest transport option is to use Terravision buses. The price is 4EUR one-way or 8EUR return. The trip takes 55 minutes. There are also options available by public bus, but they cost the same if you need to get to the center of Rome.

You don't have to check/recheck bags or anything like that I don't believe (at least from the US ...
She needs to clear immigration when her flight arrives and then claim bags to clear customs. Immigration counters are staffed ONLY when there are arriving flights, so coming through later may not even be possible. Plus staff at the airport will flush all the arriving passengers out of the jetway halls into the immigration area to make sure everyone is ...
You may qualify for "Dubai Connect", which would provide you meals, accommodation, transporation, if your itinerary matches certain conditions (layover length between 8 and 24 hours, no better connections available and there are a few more limitations). If your booking does qualify, then you should see it as an option on Emirates website under "Manage your ...
