No way and I would try to talk her into choosing another one. Even if it can be removed, why not skip that scene.

Absolutely if she got a great deal for a otherwise good property. Vermiculite insulation with asbestos could be safely removed, one must be careful of being exposed to any disturbed asbestos product to avoid inhalation.
If the seller with remedy the issue yes. If the seller will not No do not buy the house.
No. That is Toxic with Class Action Suits going on it right now, and because many have gotten so sick because it was not handled or removed correctly. You need to trust that who you hired to replace it really knows what they are doing.
Probably not, find her one without it.
Put in the contract that it must be removed by a certified remover.
I would not take the chance on there being a good outcome Judi. Asbestos is a nasty product wherever it's found.
Short answer not a chance
No. I would remove it and replace all ducts in the house.
