I don't know what "Look who she is" means in English!

'Look who she is' is the order of words for a statement or imperative in English. 'Look, who is she?' would be the order of words for the question.

Since this sentence is affirmative, but it includes an indirect question, I was wondering whether ydy  should be considered as a consequence of the relevant direct question (i.e. an interrogative ydy ):

Pwy ydy hi? → Edrychwch pwy ydy hi.

or as a consequence of the identification construction that uses ydy / yw :

Xxxx ydy hi. → Edrychwch pwy ydy hi.

In the latter case, could ydy  be replaced by yw ?

Xxxx yw hi. → Edrychwch pwy yw hi.

In this sentence, either of ydy/yw can be used.

If you heard a knock at the door and sent your roommate to "Look who it is," how would that differ from this sentence (or is this context applicable here?)

If a girl auditioned for a play, was assigned a character, and the character list was put up on a noticeboard, then one friend could tell another to "Look at who she is!" But that expression is very informal. // I'm not always understanding when to write "look" and when to write "look at".
