Is it possible to use a Super Dish (105 or 121, either material) to pick up AMC16?

Not yet, but there is rummor of a retrofit LNB kit for such a conversion.

What is the difference between 118.7 and 105/121?

118.7° uses circular polarized LNBs in the same frequency range where 105 and 121 use linear polarization. You will need a special LNB that E* has not quite started selling yet.
