As @Tim says, the answer is no. But I'm not so against interactive graphics. I can see their utility for some questions, e.g., illustrating things like paradoxes caused by endogeneity. Anytime there are issues pertaining to data in more than two dimensions, there is the possibility that interactive graphics could be helpful. Let me suggest a possible ...

Given that we have at least a few vision-impaired readers who have mentioned this fact on our site (and no doubt many more who don't post or don't mention it), I think we should attempt to add at least brief alt text as a matter of course -- it's just a matter of replacing "enter image description here" with a description of the image.

As a test, I just included an image in an answer with a new account: As you see, you only need 1 reputation -- which everyone gets -- to do that. (Since it's a useless answer, I also deleted it.)

Any software tool that will let you create a figure and output it to a supported file type, e.g., .png, can be used. For what it's worth, I find using the tools in PowerPoint convenient for that ...

No; it is not possible. The only way this could be possible is via iframe HTML tag, but stackexchange allows only a limited number of HTML tags and does not enable users to use any embedded content besides images. I also do not think that we would need plotly for anything on CrossValidated. If you need an interactive plot for your answer, then it is ...
