2.) Should I give them any advice on removing the caps? IE use the lowest heat possible, remove 123 first, etc.

Cheers!
The only thing they need to do is if they have found a capacitor that has leaked to clean it up good, repair the traces and check afterwards if the via's and traces are still good.

I have an Amiga 1200 where a capacitor has leaked, killed a via and made part of a trace black. So I scraped of the black and put solder on it to protect the trace from corrosion.
