Unlikely. Most singles I've seen are BMX type and use a 4-point remover that's a couple of inches across. Cassette removers are generally smaller and a different pattern.

No.
Shimano splined are very similar, but not interchangeable.

There are quite a few different types. This page at the Park tool site is a nice summary:

Nope.. we get freewheels for upright 'park' tricycles, in the shop, with no remover at all,
you have to replace the piece it goes on* ,
with a keyway slot for the drive axle also, (But they're cheap)..

*but so rarely does anyone bother, it does not matter..

Multi speed freewheels have a lot of variety,
cassette lock rings fewer companies make them..

earliest cassette designs used the smallest cog to hold the rest on.

Bike shops have a drawer full of a lot of different removers...
