What's the reason why I may need a cast on my knee? Is there any point of having one for a meniscus tear and possible ligament laxity

Knee immobilizer. A removable hinged knee brace is more commonly used to help protect the unstable knee, especially for the first 6 weeks after reconstructive surgery. Meniscal repairs do not routinely require bracing, although limited weight bearing (crutches) along with limits of range of motion (0-90 degrees) are commonly recommended for about 6 weeks.

Will I ever be able to play sports again if I have ligament laxity in my right ankle, knee, and thigh? Will my leg ever feel the same?

Laxity. Ligament sprains over time or multiple injuries to the same joint will result in ligament laxity or attenuation - a stretching of the ligaments. Resistance exercises or strengthening your ankle and knee muscles will tighten those muscles and tendons and help reduce the laxity. Surgery can be performed is cases where the muscles and ligaments are both stretched/ laxed to tighten them up.
Sports. See your podiatrist, orthopedist and physical therapy and as a team they will help get you as far back as possible..

I'm 25, diagnosed with ligamentous laxity after recurrence of knee edema, i'd like to know if I can go to the gym and run and what type of exercises?

Not enough info. The physician who made that diagnosis knows the severity of that laxity and which ligaments are involved. I encourage you to ask that provider if there should be any particular restrictions of activity. Take care.
Talk with your ortho. Who has evaluated you as they are in the best position to advise you.
