When you don't know the exact equation you can use the various techniques demonstrated in the answers to this question about drawing a "random" function.

comment Automatic Paragraph Numbers (\everypar only for paragraphs and not for \section and so on)
A counter and \everypar is probably the way to go. I've written something like this ages ago - will see if I can find it.

@vonbrand, ha ha! those are the reasons I don't like Asymptote... but let's not start another my tool is better than your tool discussion. Why not provide an Asy version of the OP diagram as another answer?

comment Can I query the current value of randomseed in Metapost?
More helpfully I see that the MFbook provides the useful information that the default value is day+time*epsilon -- this might provide the basis of an answer.

comment Can I query the current value of randomseed in Metapost?
I've now checked back with my own copy of the Metafont book and yes it makes it clear that it's a command. This raises the question of why is needs := after it as if it was a variable, but I guess that's a TeX history question.

comment Draw a transparent box (over a grid)
@daleif Indeed - but that's not necessarily a good thing! Transparency is a feature best used sparingly in my opinion. But it is possible in plain MP, and if you really wanted you could implement macros in MP to produce an interface as simple as that in TikZ.

comment how to set spacing after \endash or — in Greek font (GFS Porson)?
so until Porson is fixed, you could get a dash with correct spacing by defining something like \newcommand\dash{\mbox{\kern-1pt--\kern1pt}} or even \newcommand\dash{\mbox{\thinspace\kern-1pt--\kern1pt\thinspace}} if you wanted more space around it in all cases.
