You can embed your Java program into HTML web page by changing your Java program into a Java Applet. Java Applet is GUI that can call your core Java program but your Java program will run not in a console but within your Java Applet. You would need to change your Java program structure (main() method, etc.) into a Java Applet and then embed the Applet into your HTML web page. See the tutorial for Java Applets here: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/applet/

It depends if you want to work for a small/medium company or a large company like a bank.

Small/medium companies usually use Spring because it's free and allows faster development but in most cases it is not the industry standard and some times it's not easy to integrate with.

You will need Java EE if you want to work in a bank or another large company since most of large companies prefer industry standards which is Java EE. And even though some projects in some large companies moved to Spring, you will need Java EE in order to support older projects or integrate with older projects.
