Guess by doing this, keeping walkers on chains to follow her around, may actually fool other walkers to think that she is one of them...

Is this her way to walk around walkers by having walkers walking with her?

Yes, and she knew both of the chained walkers. Show may reveal more of that story later.

Does she really know them as if they used to be her friends / relatives? Or know them as her pets?

This very thing was mentioned on The Talking Dead last night and it is the general consensus. I am wondering how realistic it would be. If the walkers are used to "dead smell, it would be an ambient odour for them. If a live person were introduced, I'd think that it would be like someone in a cosmetic aisle in a drug store having someone pass behind them who lets a fart. You would not miss it even it it were missed in the all the cosmetic smells where you were standing.

She knew them well when they were people.

A more pertinent question and one not answered in Playboy, is just why she has a couple of human-neck-chains so easily to hand and quite why her boyfriend seemed to have his 'friend' round.

She had the walkers there in the comic cos the other walkers didn't notice her and the walkers on the chains masked her smell making all the walkers around her believe that she was one of them.

She might have been into bondage or something.

Way too much is being put on her chained walkers. I'm 100% positive they're gone quick in season 3.

Indeed. They're a gimmick. I may be wrong, but I do not remember any explanation from the comics involving scent, smeared walker guts and "blending in." I do remember Michonne said the stopped trying to attack her "a long time ago," had no problem parting with them, and then they were dropped and forgotten.
