Rogers has to unlock the phone. You cant share data, you have to add the phone as a new line with a new plan. There is no discount put you will get unlimited calling between the two lines on the same account.
If you qualify, you can get the byod promo. $10/month for 6 months.

There are 3rd party through eBay can unlock your iPhone. But it will be more expensive than using Rogers.
And yes, you will pay for both lines if you add her under your account.
