Yes a person can marry the above stated lineage. As per the spinda rules a person can perform marriage from his or her mother’s lineage relationship if the bride or the bride groom is belong to third generation or more. And in this case the bride is belong to the fifth generation.

You can marry within the said relationship, as it is not within the preview of sapinda relation of Hindu marriage.

But you must get the marriage registered, as it has become mandatory now. You may consult at my chamber of you wish to clarify further.

No, the bride should not fall within seven degrees from father's side and five degrees from the mother's side. The decree of you have explained (my mother's mother's brother's daughter's daughter) does not allow.
