We do know that the Saturnian race is close enough to his physically to be compatible, at least. So J'onn's got that option open.
> What if J'onn fell in love with a human woman? What if, even knowing the truth about his true form, they married?
It DID happen in JLU, at least.
> Would they be able to have kids?
Nope. We know from J'onn's ongoing that Martian sex basically merges both forms, and reproduction happens when parts of the forms intermingle too much to belong totally to either parent.
However, it IS possible to mix human DNA and Martian DNA... it just takes a little scientific help. Gypsy has some Martian DNA, as do several new villains created by the last of the White Martians in the Son of Vulcan mini.
> What might a child of theirs look like in his or her natural form?
Probably mostly human.
> What of J'onn's abilities might the child inherit? All of them? Only some? If only some, which ones?
The mental for sure. The physical, not as likely.
