You sir have a keeper.
Yes I would advise to get her a light gun like and extendable stock MP5 or a adjustable stock CQB short barrel weapon or G36 style as suggested would be a good choice. Not heavy to run around with for an extended period of time. For a vest something like an RRV with admin panel would provide good protection without being too heavy. If she doesn't care about weight but more about protection you could go with a CIRAS type vest. Make sure to get her a set of ballistic rated goggles (revision, ess, oakley) and a lower mesh mask.
As far as fields go there are a few girls that play semi regularly at Sgt. Splatters and UA.
