4. Is she throwing up hairballs or is she vomiting food?

If it really is hairballs, then you can add some lecithin to her food. That will cause the hair to pass in bowel movements.
A cat rescue group told me about this. The brand they recommended was Natures Plus Egg Yolk Lecithin 600 mg. It comes in a capsule, which you can open up and mix with the wet food. A capsule can be spread out over maybe 4-6 meals. You may want to experiment with this.

Also, you could groom her more often so she doesn't lick so much fur off herself.
