If I loan my child R150 000 and charge her 7,5% interest, would that be considered fair interest by SARS ( I will also donate R 100 000 to her in that same tax year), and the interest I earn (from the loan) would that fall into the R 23 800 interest exemption, and not actually be taxable?

Yes to all your questions, the interest rate is fair and you will be able to have an exempt portion of the interest earned.
