    To integrate a blog into a site, install a script like abduraooft suggests (Wordpress is considered the best by many). Then alter the template to fit the site's design.

    It doesn't matter who the host is, as long as they have PHP and a MySQL database. Don't pay for anything new, since she already has a working site.

    If you need more assistance in the installation and maintenance, there are books out there which might be worth it or do some searching. Its not too hard to get it running, but templates are more difficult than average web coding, but still not difficult if you know a little PHP and know HTML.
