Can I apply for a AOS from visitor to lawful permanent resident through form I-130?

I am a dual Romanian and American Citizen4 years married to a US citizen for
the last 9 years, living in the US for the past 9 years. I have a 17 yo Mexican
citizen daughter who is moving here this summer to start her last year of high
school.Currently she has a US tourist visa she came to CA three times a year for
the past 9 years during her school breaks.
What’s the best/fastest route for her to acquire permanent
residency/citizenship?
Do I apply for a AOS from tourist to lawful permanent resident through form I-
130?
Is there a way to apply for citizenship for her through US citizen parent
bypassing the permanent resident permit?
Is there a way to apply for N-600K under 322 of the INA?

There is no way to get citizenship bypassing the permanent resident stage.  But please explain how she is your daughter.  IS she your biological daughter?  Are you now married to her other parent?  Were you previously married to her other parent?  You can email me directly if you like to discuss.  sboukhny@gmail.com
