1. Do I need to get it removed as soon as possible, or can I wait one more year, for example? (I just don't know about getting a surgery during COVID). Can someone help me make this decision?

The horizontally impacted 3rd molar on right side can potentially damage the tooth in front of it. However, the root tips are very close to a major nerve. I would find an experienced oral surgeon and get a CT scan to locate the proximity of that nerve. If you are concerned with Covid, make sure you vaccinated. You are less likely to get Covid in the dentist office but schedule soon because they will usually get booked out for many months.
