    question if President Obama can fire her or can he only request her resignation?

      "Your fired"

      Whether he has the official power to do so is obviously another question. Given the fact that she is not serving for a set term it seems like he would have to have the power to fire her, otherwise no president could fire the head of the DEA and chose their own when they come into office. She would effectively serve for life.
