Swapping upgraded phone

My wife’s phone recently broke. She’s eligible for upgrade and we’ve ordered an iPhone 14 she doesn’t want the new phone though and would prefer to use my 13 pro. Can I activate her 14 under her and then swap it to my number after activation and keep the current credits we get for the device?

Yes.  

Activate on her phone number as you described.

Use temp back up.

Swap SIM and esim (bit of a shell game. Be careful not to erase an ESIM)
