That is a tough one

'In this phial,' she said, 'is caught the light of Eärendil's star, set amid the waters of my fountain.'

I don't think she could capture that light again as her proximity to it is now too far.

Yes, she gave this most precious gift to help in the most important mission. I don't think she needs it back...a gift is a gift...but we learn in the end we find out the phial does return with them.

"The words that came to Frodo`s mouth explain the light so very well " Aiya Eärendil Elenion Ancalima" meaning : Praised (or welcome) Ray-of-Light (of ) Western-star (so) Exceedingly bright. That is if you translate the original Anglo-saxon name Earendel which means Ray-of-Light.

If using the Elvish name Eärendil it means Ocean or Sea lover and thus it will be "Greetings Eärendil Sparkling-star of Great Light"

(Would that be...Greetings Sea Lover Sparkling-star...")
