Very minor spoilers for EoE...

She knows a lot about the technical side of things, but I don't think
she knows any of the "secrets".  I would say the only people who know
those are Gendo, Fuyutsuki, and Ritsuko (and she doesn't know them

On the other hand, now that I think about it, the techs did seem to
know a lot about what was going on during EoE, so maybe they knew more
about NERV's goals than one might think.

EoE: http://whistler.cs.ucla.edu/~yasuyuki/www/eva/

Rebirth is just the first half hour of EoE, so that's a moot point.
Death is *mostly* scenes from the TV show (but often times dialogue
from one scene is played over another scene), so the Literal
Translation Project scripts at
http://www1.nisiq.net/~onizuka/literal/evangelion.html might help.
There are a few new scenes and some changed bits of dialogue, though.

Kaworu, Sachiel, and Zeruel, in that order, probably.
