"ně" is used after prepositions, while "je" is used everywhere else. The same is true about other pronouns: ji/ni, jí/ní, jeho/něho etc.
E.g. Vidím ji. (I see her.) but: Mám něco pro ni. (I have something for her.)
Chci je. (I want them.) but: Nemám o ně zájem. (I'm not interested in them.)

Back to JIM and JE.
CHÁPAT is used with acusativ, so JE
ROZUMĚT is used with dativ, which is JIM
"jejím" is a form of the feminine possessive pronoun "její" (her). It can be 1) the locative singular in masculine/neuter gender, 2) the instrumental singular in masculine/neuter gender, 3) the dative plural in any gender.
Here in this sentence, you need "them", that is a form of the pronoun "they". "They" is "oni" in Czech, and we need the dative form to match the "rozumět" verb. The dative form is "jim" (or "nim" after a preposition), as you can see in this table here: https://prirucka.ujc.cas.cz/?id=on&dotaz=oni&ascii=0 (Dative is shown as "3. pád")
