Is it worth the struggle to make master batch of simple castile/bastile soap recipe, wait for lye to fully react, saponify and harden then grade it?
I would rebatch soap flakes with botanicals, gentle oils and EO.
Would it make advantage over HP process regarding adding superfats and other precious ingridients while cooking with lower temperature and 0 lye in the soap?

For me it would not be worth it. I would rather formulate a gentle bar in the first place.

No it would not. After the cook no Sodium Hydroxide remains, so there's nothing there that would be damaged by it.
