It's not a permanent while it's on the stack. 110.1. A permanent is a card or token on the battlefield. 111.1. A spell is a card on the stack. Before it resolves, it's a spell (on the stack). After it resolves, it's a permanent (on the battlefield). So no, you cannot cast Avoid Fate targeting a Counterspell that's targeting your Elvish Mystic on ...

No, only the one entering the battlefield triggers. Any time you see a card use its own name in its rules text, that means it is referring to the card that it is printed on; not other cards with the same name. 201.4. Text that refers to the object it's on by name means just that particular object and not any other objects with that name, regardless of ...
