Honestly, if it were my niece's car and I had to ask "what needs to be done?", I wouldn't be touching it. I would just pay a pro to do the work.

also what is needed to be done at 100k
Everything listed in the owners manual, ......if you know that all previous service intervals activities were done, and if not you'll need to add that to the list.

Well that 08 kia sorento used to be my car for 10 yrs with 17k miles on it until I bought a 2019 kia sorento sx. I've done the basics on the car but I haven't touched the spark plugs since their iridium's. As for the manuals it's in the car. I ask on here so I can buy the parts before I head down there. I'll probably ask the parts house

The Iridium are good for 100K miles, so you should plan on replacing those, and being the V6 you'll need gaskets for the intake manifold.

Do a quick Google search for the owners manual to confirm what's due.
