Pruning a 20 year old ficus tree

Hello! We share an office space with a woman who has decided to semi-retire. She is downsizing to one of the smaller offices, but has a very large ficus tree. It's been in a very sunny window for about twenty years, and is HUGE. We wondered if there was any way we can safely prune it without killing the plant? I know the general rule is to take no more that 20-25% of the overall tree mass when pruning back, but it is well over 8 feet tall, and has 3 main trunks, as well as some smaller sprouts from the bottom. The main trunks peak at about 8 feet, then have grown sideways for another 3-4 feet each - would it be more prudent to try to train them to loop down and around? I'm afraid if we try to cut it, we will send it in to shock. It's such a happy, beautiful plant, our office mate would love to keep it, but it's simply too big to fit in the office anymore! On a related note, I'm hoping to air-layer a cutting from one of the larger main trunks - would that be too damaging, considering the age of the tree? I've attached some photos to give you a better idea of what we're looking at. :)

pest

My azaleas have something that eat it's leaves every year. Tiny white dots appear on the leaves late summer or fall. It is a sap sucker of some kind. I got some Neem oil to spray on them before they get bugs. Is this a good treatment and when is the best time to spray them?
