Acoustically transparent.

Does the fabric on a panel need to be fully acoustically transparent..?? Also, is it Only for panels at reflective points that need such a fabric, whereas all other traps can be of any other material..? And even at reflective points, if the fabric is not porous, will it reflect both Mids & Highs completely?

For the most part yes. You want the panels in the early reflection points to be transparent. The others for bass trapping is not as important.

Basically there is nothing that has mass that is fully acoustically transparent. It's a matter to what degree.

Check Guilford of Maine Fabric FR701, Style 2100 | Acoustical Solutions, Inc. | 100% polyester fabric They're pricey, but good. Another option is to call them to request samples and in turn see what your local fabric store has.

No. All fabrics will absorb to some extent... again, it's just a matter of how much. There's no fabric that I know of that will completely reflect sound although I would stay away from shiny stuff.
