nope - PowerPC is emulated from some time

This (OpnePC) is more like ARM which is now everywhere - from small uC (replacing 8 bit) to large SoC's etc.

Not sure - for sure Power PC seem to be not apropriate to fit in decently cheap FPGA - and seem that only FPGA are Amiga chance - building cutom ASIC means at least 200 - 500 thousands chips - not sure that nowadays Amiga can be atractive to such group of customers (i mean even 20$ SoC with ARM can be more advanced).
