She's good at melee with her ice tool, but not perfect as she is very quickly overwhelmed in a matter of seconds. She focuses on avoiding them rather than fighting them, after all. As for guns, she could be a horrible shot for all we know, though Clem could possibly help her with that.
Molly would be forced to abandon the one thing she uses to survive(her parkour stuff) so Clem could keep up, and they would probably both be at a high risk of death because of that.
Molly could put Clem in a backpack like Yoda and Luke in episode V
