For all these points you can use this browser extension:

Note: it is *strongly* discouraged generating OTP tokens from the
browser extension (the rationale being: don't keep passwords and OTP secrets in
the same basket).

You can easily manage a git repo with your passwords
using pass itself; have a look at man 1 pass [0], section "EXTENDED GIT EXAMPLE".

I think I would organize one git repository per organization (or
workgroup) so you can use different gpg keys (and I'm not sure if pass
could even handle multiple gpg keys inside the same git repository).
