My understanding is the passport check takes place at AMS. How much time would that take. First time to Europe and any helpful advice appreciated. We don't frequently travel and trying to avoid Global Entry or Pre
I am flying Sept 30 from NCE, France to MPLS connecting through AMS. The NCE flight lands at 2:20, the MPLS flight departs 3:10. Both flights are Delta. I have a US passport. Do I have enough time to make the departing flight?

That is just enough time if the first flight is on-time. Note that the first flight will be operated by Air France or KLM, not Delta.
I am arriving to AMS from U.S. at 7:15 AM on a United flight, transferring on a separate ticket to a KLM flight flying AMS-Madrid at 9:30AM. I am planning on not checking any bags since there won't be time for me to collect luggage. Do you think there will be time to make this connection including the passport customs checkpoint? Will I need to go through security again anyways?
Yes, that should be enough time. If you are able to check in online for your KLM flight then all you have to do in Amsterdam is go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.
My daughter is flying Delta from SLC to AMS and then connecting to a Delta flight, operated by KLM, onto Copenhagen. Will her bags be checked all the way through to CPH and when she gets to AMS does she go through passport control or just make her connection?
Her bags will go through to Copenhagen. All you have to do is go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.
My wife arrives from USA DELTA terminal D, but has to get baggage and then check it in for next flight from Terminal C with to Spain with KLM. She is concerned about getting lost and being able to carry checked bag, carry on , and purse. Is there a map of the terminal showing baggage claim?
If it is all one reservation she doesn't have to do anything with her checked bags in Amsterdam. Amsterdam only has one Terminal.
So the #1 and #2 on the map are in the same terminal and don't have separate customs or baggage claims?
There are separate Schengen and Non-Schengen arrivals areas. Other than that it's all one terminal, and as I said, if both her tickets are on the same reservation then she doesn't have to do anything with her bags in Amsterdam.
She has Two separate reservations/ tickets.
She can show her KLM confirmation to the Delta agent in her origin and have her bags tagged through to Spain and not have to claim them in Amsterdam.
