This question is really two questions. The direct question is whether a petrified creature is capable of using telepathy; but the implied question is whether a petrified creature is conscious. If the creature is not able to think, then there are no thoughts to transmit. The implied question has been asked before: Does a petrified creature stay conscious (and ...

No, they cannot And I'm basing this mostly on this part of Petrified: The creature is unaware of its surroundings.

There is a general rule that supernatural abilities cannot be dispelled, found on page 314 of the Player's Handbook: Supernatural abilities are not subject to dispelling, disruption or spell ...

Yes, the paralysis can happen only on a hit. This is explained in the introduction to the Monster Manual (p. 10-11), under "Melee and Ranged Attacks": Hit. Any damage dealt or other effects that occur as a result of an attack hitting a target are described after the “Hit” notation. You have the option of taking average damage or rolling the damage;...
