How to use multiple passports?

A family member born in another country recently became a US Citizen and got a US passport. Her old country does not allow dual citizenship and would revoke her citizenship if they found out about her becoming a US citizen, but she still wants to use the native passport on trips to the native country and retain her citizenship.

How can she do this? When a passport is scanned at customs, what info does it provide the customs agent?
She's currently an expat in a 3rd country where she uses her US passport. If passport scans show all previous entries/exits to other countries, the last item will show entry into the US, but not an exit. Would this require her to go to another country and enter/exit there on the home country visa prior to actually entering the home country?
Or does the passport scan not even reveal this data? I know many people use multiple passports, but usually when both governments allow this. Anyone know how it works when one country does not allow dual citizenship?
