Hey. I couldn't find the answer to these question so hopefully someone here knows the answer.

1. What's the difference between Latent Recovery and Latent Revival? Is it just the phase of the moon when the Persona is fused?

2. How can I tell if the Persona I'm trying to fuse to get the Latent Recovery/Revival on succeeded? Is there a way to use the Fusion Cheat to guarantee it?

3. Can you use Stones or Bullets when fusing and still get the Latent Ability?

Thanks!

Latent Recovery is a chance that the Persona will heal its host for a certain amount of HP and/or SP when in low health.

Latent Revival is a chance that the host will automatically be revived with full HP when killed in battle. The Persona will revert to Rank 1 and lose its skills but will keep its stats. The skills can be re-learned as the Persona ranks-up again and the stats will increase even more so Latent Revival is the only way to increase a Persona's stats after they've reached MAX Rank.

All kinds of Latent Ability depend solely on the phase of the moon when the Persona is fused and the kind of demons you are fusing to create them. For example, if you create a Persona during a New Moon and the second demon in the fusion belongs to the Drake race, then the resulting Persona will have Latent Revival. It's not a chance that the Persona will gain the Latent Ability, if the conditions of the fusion allow it, then the resulting Persona WILL have it.

Also, since it depends solely on which demons you are fusing and the moon phase, the item added in fusion has no bearing whatsoever so don't worry about an item negating the Latent Ability.

I suggest checking the Megami Tensei Wiki's page on the subject for more details and a full list of which demon and moon phase combinations produces each ability: https://megamitensei.fandom.com/wiki/Unknown_Power

Many people use the wikidot page for P1 info, but when it comes to Latent Ability, that site's info is outdated and the wiki is more complete.
