Not online: Hard to judge these things online but it might be serious. You should at least go to an urgent care today or call your primary for advice.

Plantar fascitis: Pain on startup that eases somewhat then gets worse as the day progresses. Perform daily achilles stretches with at least 30 second hold. Wear shoes with adequate support and some cushion in heel or buy off the shelf inserts. Roll the bottom of your foot with a soup can or similar object twice a day for a minute or two. See an ortho surgeon if there is no improvement after a few weeks.

Yes: Outpatient in the USA. You will be at the hospital or surgery center for several hours including 1-2 hours after surgery. You will need someone to give you a ride home.
