It's great that your putting more time and efford into her then her owners are. For the jumping issue say 'No' in a firm voice, cross your arms and ignore her, once she get that 'hey when I do that she doesn't lay attention to me' she shouldn't do it anymore.
I taught Kibbles to play dead by making him lie down and making a 'pow' sound and rolling him on to his side. He can also dance with me when I tell him to jump up. What else can he do... Ring a bell to go outside, paw, speak.
If the dog is willing and you are willing she can be taught almost anything. I have a friend who taught her dog to jump rope.
