i. I am currently benefiting from an ongoing SNSF professorship. May I still apply for Eccellenza?

You may not apply for an SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowship (Article 4 paragraph 1 of the Eccellenza Regulations). However, under certain conditions, you may be eligible to apply for an SNSF Eccellenza Grant: you must satisfy the personal requirements set out in Article 5 of the Eccellenza Regulations, and you may not submit a proposal for a duration of support that overlaps your SNSF Professorship unless it is thematically clearly distinct. Note however that in any case you may only apply for an SNSF Eccellenza Grant once (i.e. no resubmissions are allowed).
