It is certainly possible to remotely view a computer screen from an iPhone. I do this from my iPad to monitor what my young son is viewing when using the computer in the other room. But there are some caveats.

If by "this cloud thing" you are referring to Apple's iCloud service, the best it can do is to allow someone to see what the URL (page address) you are viewing at any given moment IF iCloud is configured on your computer and her iPhone with the same iCloud account and if iCloud 'Safari Tab sharing' is activated and if you are using Safari as your web-browsing software.

Otherwise, there is software that can be purchased and installed on her iPhone that, after making some configurations on the computer will allow the user to see everything that is happening on the screen, in real time. These programs usually display some sort of notification or icon (albeit small) indicating that the computer is being viewed remotely. This is how I monitor my child. This is not difficult, but it takes some doing and I would say it is beyond the grasp of the average computer user. My wife would not be able to figure out how to set it up in a million years, for example.

There are 'less than legitimate' programs that can be installed on the computer that remain hidden and give no indication that the screen is being viewed remotely. Unless she is some sort of highly skilled, FAR above average computer expert, I would not worry about these.

Technically, yes it is possible.
But, they would have to have access to your ipad to jailbreak it and install hidden software on it. If you ever upgraded to a newer version of iOS after that, it would wipe it all out.
If you use iCloud and someone has that password, they would have limited access to some stuff on your iPad such as your email, contacts, etc, but they would not be able to "see what you are doin" ..
So even though it is technically possible, it is very difficult and very highly unlikely.
