Yeah, they could hold one policy in each hand, park the cars close together and stand with a foot on each car.

(Yes.)

Yes, but you may only use your NCD on one policy.

Unless he is the main driver of the other car its fraud and could render the insurance void.

Correct the offence is called "Fronting" and it is actually a criminal offence and the person driving the car "you" could be prosecuted for driving with no insurance
Fronting - the practice of an experienced motorist fraudulently insuring a vehicle that a younger person will drive - is actually no laughing matter. If you're caught, your insurance policy is likely to be deemed invalid and any claim you make could be rejected.

Young people found to be fronting may be prosecuted for driving without insurance. Conviction for this offence can result in a hefty fine or six penalty points being added to the driver's licence - which, in the case of a newly-passed individual, would effectively mean an automatic ban.

The older person involved in any case of fronting is also likely to face punishment. He or she could be prosecuted for insurance fraud and may even be sent to prison if found guilty.

No it is fronting and illegal, if she is the policy holder she has to be the main driver.

As long as you are listed as the MAIN driver for the Focus, it'll be OK. She can be the policy holder for both, and even the legal owner for both, but if you are the main driver you need to be down as the main driver, otherwise you are fronting (using the car more than the main driver). You may find the quotes you have received will alter when you change the driver type from named to main. Do not use the same NCD twice though, that's another naughty! You can be the MAIN driver, and not the policy holder.
