Can "in ludo" modify "girls" as an adjective as well as "dormiunt" as an adverb? If so, how does on distinguish between the two meanings?


(To be pedantic, in ludo is a prepositional phrase, not an adjective or an adverb.) Yes, it can have an adjectival usage (limiting a noun) or adverbial usage (limiting a verb). The two usages would be distinguished by word order in some cases, or just by context.
