There aren't cherries in the vagina to be popped in the first place:

Do you have any specific questions about the articles? What is it that you find confusing?

If your friend can fit her finger in her vagina then using a tampon should be no problem.

The hymen, or corona, stretches rather than breaks. It's not a solid thing but rather a stretchy membrane that already has some holes in it. Think about it this way: if there wer something solid covering the vaginal opening, menstrual blood wouldn't be able to get out.
