Abstinance on Friday is church law, it can be changed. I am not in favour of stopping abstinance on friday, but it is changeable.
I don't know about the second one. I think they could do that if they wanted to.
3rd one on confession is a serious no no, there are very strict rules on confession and if they are broken there is automatic excommuncation on the Priest.
There are very good reasons why Confession is only done in private and in person. Church Law states you have to make a confession once a year. If you cannot make it to confession perform an act of contrition.
