She either "likes singing" generally, or more specifically "she likes singing to herself" (when there is no one else around). You may be thinking of "herself" as a way of emphasising "she" but it would probably not be necessary in your context.

"those ones" is not wrong but "ones" is not necessary. The noun "people" appears only a few words before and so "those" would be enough to indicate "those people". From a stylistic point of view, many people regard "these ones" and "those ones" as rarely necessary, as "these" and "those" usually are sufficiently specific.
