Default Transfer PD between Spouses

Hi guys, I looked all over on this topic but could not find any details. I am hoping some of you have had some experience with this, so please help!

I have my I-485 filed with a 07/2003 PD. My wife is on my application as a dependent. There is a good chance I will get the GC soon, but then again I am done predicting anything where the USCIS is involved I would rather plan for the worse! I am desperate to start school full-time next year (already have admits from a few top-10 b-schools) but, of course, cannot do so until I get the GC.

At the same time, my wife has an approved PERM with a 08/2007 PD. We are waiting for the premium processing option to get re-instated before filing for her I-140.

I had read someplace that once she has an approved I-140 AND MY PD is current, we can transfer my PD to her application. That way, I become the dependent and I am free to go to school (on a H-4 or EAD?). My question(s) to the gurus is...

a) Is this possible? Is it advisable?
b) If yes, how do I go about doing it?
c) How much time should I keep aside for the transfer process?
d) Any other suggestions are more than welcome.

Thanks in advance for your help guys.
