Fry Me Twice

Daughter has again
introduced liquids to the innards of a laptop computer. This time a 1.5 y/o Macbook Pro. She wiped it off, assumed it was fine, but then it slowly and inevitably died.
She is showing up at my house in a few days with the still-viable hard drive, which the Apple Store removed for her. I have a 3 terabite external hard drive and a Macbook Pro.
Can someone tell, or link me to how to get her files off her hard drive and onto this external drive?

Can I partition this drive since I have some (possibly) useful PC files on it, or do I have to wipe it, which would not be a huge loss? What cables will I need to get her hard drive spinning and yielding its files?
