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

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.
