Default The best midi fader for my needs?

I've been looking for a midi control surface to help with my automation work and I have a few questions. I've been looking at both the Faderport and Icon M+ or x+, since I don't have much space for anything bigger.
I'll mostly be using one fader at a time for automation, but I have considered a bigger controller mostly for controlling fx parameters by having mapped out the different faders to fx paramters on synths, comps or EQs to get a more tactile feel.

1. Can I use these to automate anything, like the Midi wheel, FX parameters or sends using either Realearn or FaderportXT?

2. Will the motor respond to something like a synth cutoff and show the actual value on the physical fader?

3. Can I have the controller mapped to different plugins, so that I can select an instance of Omnisphere and control it like a physical synthesizer and then click on another track/instance of Omnisphere and switch the controls over to the one on the fly? Can Realearn do this?

Looks interesting. I still take suggestions on what controller to actually get. Also, how far out is this? I can see the thread is from 2016 has anything been released yet?

I am "alpha" testing it with the X-Touch in "native" aka non MCU mode.
