Will Wireshark enable packet forwarding to tcp socket instead of file ? (e.g. Resend captured packets to ip:port using "some" protocol) ?

No. Wireshark always writes captured packets to file. In some cases you can also direct the incoming packets to a pipe IIRC, but that will not resend them anywhere else. You need a packet replay / packet generator tool for that, for example bittwist, tcpreplay or ostinato.

No, it won't.
If all you want to do is send raw packets over the wire, Wireshark is overkill. What you might want is, for example, a combination of a program that can capture traffic and write it to a pipe and a program that can read the pipe and send it over the wire, such as tcpdump and netcat.
