Is this a solution to listen to lossless on Apple Music on iPhone with a pair of regular earphones (by regular I mean with a Jack) ?

Yes, this will do the trick for Apple Music. MQA is used by Tidal for their Master quality tracks, so this is ideal for Tidal on mobile.

so the community says MQA does nothing to improve sound quality, but does it reduce it?

It is essentially a remaster, with embellishments. So,, not better or worse, but a new interpretation, an option. You can also just play around eq’ing, but it seems that MQA is an adaptive algorithm, so tough to duplicate. Some MQA I have sampled sound quite nice, some overdone… if some hardware has it built-in great, if not, great too.

What are the impedance and power output specs? This thing looks lt would be nearly perfect if it had a passthru port for charging

I have an Advanced Audio DAC for iPhone with passthrough charging, and while it is nice in a pinch, there is a noticeable noise while listening on IEMs. Depending on the charging source it can be a buzz, hum, or hiss. That said, battery hasn't been a significant issue for me since I had an iPhone 5 (all plus models since).

Will it work with a case like an otterbox?

Looks like a tight fit to the body of the phone, I would guess that the only way it would work with an Otterbox is with an extension cable or something.

https://www.headphonesty.com/2021/07/review-audirect-atom-2-dac-amp/ - According to this article, 32 Ohms. HD 6XX have an impedance of 300 Ohms, so I would say no, as volume would be super low.
