She may apply for F at the US consulate and should take proof of your marriage and enrollment in a US school.

Once you have F-1 status, your posting is unclear on whether or not you have it now, she can apply for an F-2 visa.

The title of your question indicates that you got the F-1 change of status. In the body of your question, you state that you are hopeful to get the F-1 status. Which one is correct? You have to show proof that you are maintaining the terms of the F-1 and that you have the means to pay for your wife's stay on an F-2. Also, your wife must be able to prove that she does not have an immigrant intent and she has strong ties to Pakistan.

Yes, if you get the F1 she can get the F2 from Pakistan. "Easily," is a question based on your specific case.
