#1
Is CAST equals to ACGME accredited fellowship?
I can't see any ACGME accreditation in fellowship program descriptions but some of them have CAST accreditation.

CAST is all that matters. ACGME is only relevant to peds.

Why are non-CAST fellowships often filled? Will those still work outside of academics?

I think CAST may or may not work outside academics, but for many it is just good experience with good mentors.
