Yes, you can write GEOS apps with cc65, thanks to the great work of Maciej
Witkowiak. GEOS support has some rough edges and would need people testing it
and sending feedback, but it's definitely there. Maciej is on the list, maybe
he can give you some more details.

Yes, that would be nice. On the other side: I have not seen a single C64
application available to the public that was written with cc65 (besides my
own). It seems that especially CBM people are very conservative when it comes
to development tools. So don't hold your breath while waiting for new GEOS
