I'll leave it to those qualified to talk about practicality and feasability
so I just snipped everything and ask you a counter question instead:
What exactly do you mean with roleplaying in your game?
It looks to me like you're working on a way to get rid of the straight-
forward kill something for experience and equipment type of games and
reward use of other skills directly rather than indirectly. This seems
like a good goal to work to but well, is this what you mean with

Yes - at last - You. I Choose you. Out of all the world,
out of all the seeking, I have found you, young sister of
my heart! You are mine and I am yours - and never again
will there be loneliness ...
