Yes it is no problem. A cover letter isn't required, but IMO it is a good idea. Ours just gave a brief introduction and then listed out the items we were sending, in the order they were arranged in the package. I would include an EOR letter as well. Again it isn't required by USCIS but some consulates expect to see this (like GUZ for example)

If she can add your name to things, she should do so.

Other items could be emails exchanged, phone records, chat logs, evidence from trips taken, etc.
