I own hundreds of PC games and not one of them has messed up my PC.
She's probably scared of the PC breaking and a big repair bill to fix it.
You could tell her that you'll pay the repair bill if you break it.

The registry will get larger regardless of where you install the games anyway. The registry gets bloated when you continually install and uninstall applications/games etc. Slowness and a bloated registry can be sorted out by running a registry cleaner such as CCleaner, cleaning up temporary files and running disk defragmenter.
Running the game off the old PC's hard drive via a network would be slow and completely unnecessary. Why not have the the old hard drive fitted in the new PC?
If you don't want to do that you could take it to a shop and get someone to fit another drive (they are quite inexpensive).

Note: You will need XP disk to do this.

There is a myth that has been going on for a while that the fuller the hard drive the slower it is. My parents still believe this after i've given them 10 lectures that this isn't the case. Make sure this isn't something your mom believes because it isn't true, don't know why people that know less assume that this is the case with computers.
Also there is a problem is the windows code, that has plagued Microsoft for some time. The older a computer gets the slower it becomes, there has never been an answer to this. But Microsoft has hopes that since the recoded vista's entire operating system ground up that it will not do this......We'll cross our fingers and hope.
