I would have to be "Τι κάνει αυτή;" to include the "she" otherwise it is correct and accepted.

How important is the word order? I tried "Πως αυτή είναι" but that was incorrect. Is it never said that way or is it just not very common?

Word order is fairly flexible in Greek BUT some word orders are more common in artistic style like songs and poems and not every day speech. COMMON Ο σκύλος παίζει μπάλα (the dog plays football) SVO Παίζει μπάλα ο σκύλος (Plays football the dog) VOS . UNCOMMON Μπάλα παίζει ο σκύλος (Football plays the dog) OVS Ο σκύλος μπάλα παίζει (The dog football plays) SOV
