Yes she does. EEA family permit is only good for entering UK. If she later obtains residence card as family member of an EEA citizen, that will exempt her of obtaining Schengen visa.

No. Even if she needs to change planes (connecting flight) in a Schengen country (e.g. Frankfurt), provided she doesn't leave airside, she won't need Schengen visa.

Until the UK issued Residence Card is obtained, I strongly suggest to apply and secure the proper visa, in this case Schengen Visa. Sadly, no every Immigration Officer is well versed on Freedom of Movement.

Animo

Only if you live in UK together with your EEA partner and they get a job or another way of exercising treaty rights.
