Would it have been possible for Emperor Francis Joseph to change the succession so that his granddaughter, Archduchess Elisabeth (Rudolph's daughter) could succeed him as an Empress Regnant?

Technically yes. In practise it is doubtable, if it would've worked. FJ himself didn't want female succession. It's said that this was the main reason of why he had nothing against her morganatic marriage to Prince Windisch-Graetz.

With this every attempt to change the laws would've been useless anyway as she was not suitable anymore. But Erzsi was never brought up as heiress anyway, her education alone was not made for a heiress.

Well education seems rather underrated for heirs anyway. And Austria did have an empress and an impressive one at thatů

Francis Joseph's German identity was made clear during a meeting in August 1908 between himself and King Edward VII when Edward tried to persuade him to abandon Austria-Hungary's alliance with Germany for co-operation with England. Francis Joseph replied that he was a "loyal ally" and "I am a German prince."

Biographics on YouTube has a decent video on Franz Josef if anyone has 30 minutes and don't know much about Franz Josef and his reign over Austria-Hungary. This is one of their better videos actually. If you know a lot, disregard.

Sometimes Empress Elisabeth threw balls but invited only young people, not their higher-ranking mothers.

At the age of six Archduke Francis Joseph had thirteen to eighteen hours a week of lessons. At the age of seven this increased to thirty-two hours a week.
