Which state would I need to get insurance in if my daughter will be attending graduate school out-of-state and the car is in my name?

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.

Is it possible for a family member to register and insure my car if I'm no longer driving?

That shouldn't be an issue, however she would need to insure the vehicle before she attempts to get tags. I believe you will first have to return your tags to the state and then she can start the process.

How soon do I have to get my car registered in Florida after I move?

The state of Florida requires that you register a car within 10 days of starting a new job in the state or enrolling a child in school. Your insurance company doesn't care where the vehicle is registered because you have to get insurance before you can register it anyway, so that shouldn't be a problem.
