comment A machine for automatic tremolo picking
Gilbert had a famous accident in a huge arena concert when his Makita power drill picking apparatus got tangled in his long hair during a solo. It resulted in his getting a tongue-in-cheek endorsement from the Makita tool company. The 80s are long gone; these days, Mr. Gilbert has short hair, but he no longer uses that device, either.

comment A machine for automatic tremolo picking
Yes, there are digital tremolo effects for guitar (and I'm not referring to "whammy" or pitch-bend effects pedals; that's something different) which can produce a rapid, choppy sound. Using one of those in conjunction with an Ebow would be a novel way to achieve an interesting effect.

comment Minimal MIDI digital piano
You are asking a lot of different questions here, @David, but the answer to these is "yes". MIDI can capture how hard you press the key (velocity), how fast you release the key (release velocity), how hard you press down on the key after it is depressed (aftertouch), and there are foot pedals with partial damping -- but only if the particular keyboard or instrument supports these features.
