I think it has as it's formed according to the grammatical rules of the English language. It's also in a way necessary especially if it comes to the precision in meaning as well as differenciation between durative and non durative activities.

i think it has a passive form because the correct form is : present progessive passive . we use is/are being + past participle

In my opinion is yes because I think that in every verb tense uses to have or to be
