There is a progression system using the Lifetime Fate Cycle, which is part of the four pillars analysis.

Yes, in the same sense that Western astrology can by using the 4th and 10th houses - i.e., you are then reading the parents from the child's viewpoint, not the parents from the parent's viewpoint.

Yes and no. The four pillars are actually the year, month, day and hour pillars, where, following typical Chinese convention, the hours are actually "double hours:" that is, twelve to a day. You can still get quite a bit of information without the exact tie of birth, but the greater the error in birthtime, the greater the possible error in interpretation, because the hour pillar may be either unobtainable or wrong.
