If I understand you correctly. In order for a game to see her as a different person, she will need her own PSN ID. Anything purchased on your ID and installed to the PS3 will be playable with her account.

 

I believe that xbox works mostly the same way, you need a gamertag for each person.

She cant use your Plus account but she can play any games that are downloaded from the store via your account on hers provided their on the same console.  Only your account will have the discounts and free games offered to you on the PS Store and only your account will upload save files to the cloud for storage.  But yes she can play them from her PS account as long as you download them and their on the same console.

She doesn't use it as such, but so long as her PSN ID (Gamertag) is on the same PS3/4 as yours then all of the Plus content available to you will also be available to her as well.

 

P.S. Welcome to PlayStation, we're glad to have you, please let us know if you have any further questions.
