3. I don't know if you and I will see it, but it's not

incomprehensible some day in the future - we can't really predict where technology will take humanity in the next fifty years or so.

So I'm saying it's possible, with half tongue in cheek.
OTOH , I believe Francis did say, fairly recently, that married clergy was something he'd take a look at sometime in the future, so, who knows, lots of things are possible.

RE confession (or penance) itself - I try for about once a year. I'm too old to have much of consequence to confess, except some bad habits which I'm unlikely to change at this age, and I'm beyond beating myself up on that account. I don't mind the face-to-face; can't kneel in the old-fashioned style confessionals due to knee replacements. I was confessing on an annual retreat for a few years, but now the retreat has been cancelled due to lower attendance. So I'll just fit it in when I can.
