Nope it's too small of a tank and engineer gobies get really really large at just a little over 1ft long. 55g is the minimum recommended size.

Gobies and Blennys are about it. They aren't true eels but they kind of look like it. Try a Canary or a Midas blenny.

No as well. Those need about a 120g tank as they grow over 2 ft long. The tank you are trying to stock is very very small and is very limiting on stock.

I'm in the same boat as you so I know how it feels. Bigger and better things will come in time

If you don't have other fish in the tank, you could make a species tank with pipefish.

A good dwarf moray would work but they are quite pricey.
