Is it possible for Mach3 (full version) to report estimated run time for a file?

Yes, on the Toolpath Tab(alt 4) there is a button labled 'Simulate program run' which will simulate the loaded gcode and report the estimated time below.  Not exactly accurate but close.

Not in the stock screens.  You would have to use a screen editor like MachScreen to add the button and dro Both Standard Code 15.  there may be a commercial turn set that has it but i have never looked.
