  1. Electrons do very positive work for us most of the time such as computing. Their electric charge is negative. Why negative? We had to assign opposite polarities to them against protons and at the time it was made in the late 18th century it seemed like a good choice. We made the wrong assignment. It doesn’t make physics wrong but we have to use negative numbers for the charge we use the most.

    Yes. Electrons always have a negative charge. Their antiparticle partner is the positron, which always has a positive charge; electron-positron pairs can be created when energy interacts with matter at energy levels of 1.02 MeV or higher. Such matter to energy interaction that creates this dynamic is called Pair-Production.
