Its not that difficult to do the swap, all you need is the automatic pedal assembly, flex plate, torque converter, trans, trans mount, automatic shifter and have an automatic tune loaded in the computer... but its cheaper to teach her to drive a stick if you have the patience to teach and she has the will to learn, if not its probably better to just find her an automatic.

easy way to teach a novice is to take throttle cable off and start car rolling with clutch alone. Yes it can be done and it will take patience
