I don't think rankings will ever be fully-restored unless the site acquires some new "natural" backlinks to compensate for old backlinks that were removed or devalued.
Yes. If links are devalued then replacements will need to be made. I have carried on link building thoughout and have picked up a couple of very nice links that have made no difference at all so far.
Do you still rank for any terms, longtail, etc? Also, do you rank for snippets of your own content?
Very little. Longtail and main keywords have been badly affected. Though most longtail do contain the main keywords too which is possibly why.
