No, there is no way she can just become a citizen. You first have to petition for her to become a permanent resident.

Your fiance needs to become a permanent resident first. If she enters the US on a tourist visa with the purpose of getting married, it will cause a very serious problem. Consult with an attorney.

It's possible. But, there's also the possibility that USCIS may accuse your fiancee of committing visa fraud if they believe she had a preconceived intent to remain permanently when she entered the US with a nonimmigrant visa.

If you marry her while she;'s here and she stays here and you file for the green card, she can certainly get the green card much faster here, than abroad.
