    She needs to sign in to iTunes with whatever ID she was using before - there's no problem about her using one ID for iCloud and a different one for iTunes, iTunes in the Cloud and iTunes Match.

    When we migrated to iCloud, we did not follow this order (delinking sub accounts and then migrating the Master account) as a result we have had tons of problems with eeping everything in sync (ical, etc...).  Is there a way to "Start over"?

    I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Family Pack sub-accounts were always separate from each other, with their own logins and separate syncing. Once migrated they become, as you would expect, completely separate iCloud accounts. Each should be able to sync with an single user account on a Mac or Macs - you can't have more than one iCloud account syncing with any one user account (any more than you could with the MobileMe sub-accounts). There is no syncing between iCloud accounts (any more than there was with MobileMe), though you can share calendars if required, privately to other iCloud subscribers with write privileges, or publicly to anyone who can view them in a CalDAV client (such as iCal) but read only.
