I like the idea of a devastating cav charge but I'm wondering how feasible it is. I'd assume it will simply encouraging a long range sniping affair with pikes guarding the trebs for the attacker.

nope, defenders seige weps apperntly have a longer range than the attack so saves the. 'Send in the trebs and watch there walls crumble as i sit here and watch' plan, also there are secret tunnels and entrences meaning caverly might turn up and wipe them out while u try and distract the enemy with a frontal assult with a battering ram. meaning the seige will more than likly be what has happened in this Fridays post, and have to require alot of work from your whole force and not just a singlepart of it.

In Bfme, wall mounted units got slaughtered by catapults - only way to counter was with cavalry. Cavalry often found catapults guarded by pikemen. Will walls themselves be attackable [not talking about top of wall, but the actual stone part] - or just gates?
I'm quite sure that you will be able to take down the walls with your catapults, I don't see why they should be limited in that respect.

Just wondering... I was thinking more along the line of this - units attacking walls and gates. That will be impossible right?

No, you don't stab through solid rocks. You walk into them and fight a 1 v 1 match inside. Then no one except the thousands of soldiers outside can join
