Keeping university options open
1. If she changes her mind she will need to ask the university if they will let her; UCAS will then need to be informed (by the university, I believe).
2. Again, she will need to ask the university if they will allow it. It's probably best to approach universities with a change of mind at the earliest possible time.
3. She should contact both universities.
4. She could try contacting her Unconditional university to ask if they would consider a change of course. If they do not (and they are under no obligation to do so) she might need to withdraw and submit a new UCAS application for 2018 entry.
5. You can re-apply the following year, without prejudice. I would advise your daughter to keep a Word version of her Personal Statement which she can update to re-use in a modified version. She will also need to ask her school for an Academic Reference again. Again, check that this will be possible.
