If you buy all this gear in advance, just do Alkaizer runs (act 3 highly crowded areas, start new game after a quick clear, don't focus on single enemies and just kill large crowds) on MP10 on the highest possible difficulty with your GF, you can get her from 0 t 60 in 2-3 hours. I'm usually not interested in "efficiency" but it's fun to see your friend ding every few minutes and try for a 60 char in less than 2 hours :-)
I'm in the same boat. I just got her account to Nightmare. What difficulty are you running at to get the 2nd account to 60 in 2 hours?
As soon as the 2nd account dings level 25, switch to Nightmare, and as soon as level 50 is reached, go to Hell. Always MP10. The challenge is to stay alive, especially on the lower levels when you don't have much gear yet; I was playing an Archon wizard, the 2nd char always close to me and I would always make sure that no enemy would touch him.
Here are some tips/requirements that you should prepare
to speed it up, in a more compiled manner. Every point decreases level time, if you can't get some of the first points on the list it will obviously slow everything down (e.g., since your GF can't get a Hellfire Ring, I'm not sure if 2 hours are possible).
-Fast main character killing everything (I run as Archon wizard with 24% movement speed)
-Maximize movement speed on 2nd char (+12% on boots, one level ~30 legendary with > 10% MS, either Band of Untold Secrets or Slave Bonds)
-Hellfire Ring with preferably vit roll as main stat, and as much EHP as possible (vit, allres, armor, socket)
-Cain set with good vit rolls
-Helm with vit, socket, and pickup, high ruby gem
-Lower level items (~10-15) with vit and pickup radius (health globes), XP per kill (efficient on lower levels, gets useless at around ~40)
-Mid-range items with vit and socket (put amethyst gems in there) that you can equip at level 25 when entering nightmare
-If money isn't an issue, an item upgrade at 35-40 might not be a bad idea, but it's not necessary (will just decrease likelihood of dying and speed things up)
-Some decent level 60 items with -10 level requirements reduced for Hell once you ding 50; all EHP on this one (vitality, allres, armor, sockets + amethysts, some pickup).
If you go for shortest time possible, play style as follows:
Main char opens game, goes act 3 Alkaizer route, 2nd char just follows and tries to stay away from enemies. Don't bother getting any DPS, kill something, picking anything up - only goal is to stay alive though heavily undergeared for MP10.
Shortly before level 25/50 open game in act 4, kill Diablo to get access to next difficulty. 2nd char should have all the equipment already in inventory so he/she can equip everything on the way and doesn't need to TP. No need to pick up any low-level crap, so no need for free inventory space. If main char is wizard, Storm Armor + Shocking Aspect is extremely useful: it will one-hit single enemies that you overlooked, but that can kill the 2nd car.
