Can you insure a leased vehicle out of state?

It could be tough for your daughter to insure the leased vehicle if insurance companies see that she is not the owner. In addition, your lease agreement likely states that you have to be insured on the vehicle, and they may not be okay with your daughter being both the primary driver and out of state.

If I move to Florida from Virginia for college, would I have to change my plates and get Florida auto insurance?

Florida law states that if you are in the state for over six months of the year, you need to register and tag the vehicle there. To do so, you will require PIP (as Florida is a no-fault state) and liability insurance.

How should I handle my daughters' car insurance when they're in college?

The vehicle will need to be insured in the state where it is driven, so you have 1 of 2 options. You can have your daughter added as a co-owner of the vehicle and she will be able to register and insure the vehicle in her name, in the new state.
