In the not so distant future when finding block in a somewhat decent time requires several TH/s The creation of a new successful pool will be extremely difficult and ineffective. Do you think we will need a service which can join multiple smaller pools into a single larger pool to help control the variance?

Yes. (Semi-)decentralized pools like p2pool should work nicely as the larger pool.

 Actually, we already need service like that. It may be called "Anti-Deepbit coalition".

if the price of BTC keeps falling steadily.. mining by yourself with 2-5 gh/s might be feasible for
many moons to come as i would expect difficulty to level out. Maybe even go down. who knows.

Multiclone is something completely different.
