Would we expect an endothermic reaction to be more favorable at a very high temperature?

Yes because endothermic reactions require energy for the reaction to go forward, so endothermic reactions are held back by the lack of energy, but when you supply that energy in the form of heat with higher temperatures the reaction is allowed to take place more often resulting in a equilibrium shift towards the products.

Yes, endothermic reactions mean heat is a reactant, so in high temperature (lots of heat), the reaction will proceed to the right in order to decrease the temperature/heat.

yes, because the reaction would have more heat to absorb from the surroundings. Therefore, you can think of it as heat not being a limiting reactant.

Yes because at higher temperatures there’s more heat and since endothermic reactions absorb heat, the reaction will occur/tend towards the products

Endothermic means that there is energy going into the reaction. So if there is an increase of temperature endothermic is favored because the increased heat allows the reaction to favor the products.
