2. Can Struggle result in a critical hit? If so, would the recoil be doubled?

If a Pokemon has Rock head it will still take recoil damage.

>A Pokémon will still take recoil damage even if it has an Ability that would prevent it, such as Rock Head.

It can strike a critical hit, and the recoil would double.

Since you take 1/2 of the damage dealt, you would take more damage if it results in a critical hit.

>Struggle is capable of striking a critical hit.

Hope I helped.
