is this feasible?

how to save the currently installed pkgs for reinstall?

You can save a list - YaST->Software Managment->Extras->Export package
list. (I presume there is a zypper incantation too). It can be
imported during installation.
Unfortunately the list does not include banned packages which make it
slightly less useful, but ignoring that, it's very useful.
