Immigration, Marriage, and Citizenship: Japan and Romania

Hello again!

Just questions on the abovementioned subjects. I've done some research, but I'm a little confused, so I just want to make sure.

Case I: Japanese Citizenship laws and such

I have a character, an Englishwoman, who got married to a Japanese man sometime in the 1980s. Can she retain her citizenship or does she automatically gain Japanese citizenship? If she can retain her citizenship, is there any special laws or policies she would be under? I had thought she would be considered a 'resident alien'. Also, does her child 'inherit' her 'British subject' status or will the child have dual citizenship (be both a Japanese citizen and a British subject)?

Case II: Romanian Immigration to the US

A Romanian family wishes to migrate to the US in the late 1970s or early 1980s. What options of travel would be available to them? What routes would they take? I know there are certain acts or treaties that allows Romanians to migrate to the US. 

Many thanks in advance!
