1-- Both 'of's are prepositions: of being, of them. But I suppose that is not your real question; what is your real question?

2-- Yes.
It is non-finite and of is preposition here used with privilege.

Hi,

Very few people have the privilege of being born on the same day as their mom or dad, Jane is one of them.

This is actually a run-on sentence. It should be written as two sentences (or joined by a conjunction, eg 'and'.)

Very few people have the privilege of being born on the same day as their mom or dad. Jane is one of them.

Hi,

But that main clause can be further subdivided into finite clause and non-finite clause. Right? Green is finite clause and purple one non-finite. Correct?

Very few people have the privilege of being born on the same day as their mom or dad.

The main clause is Very few people have the privilege. What you call the rest of the sentence depends on which system of naming things you have learned. I would call 'it an adjectival phrase because I learned a system in which a clause requires a finite verb.
