Will northern hemisphere’s winter be located at the farest point to the sun in the future due to the axial precession?
Northern hemisphere’s summer will be located at the nearest point to the sun

Yes, basically - for now. We're nearest the sun early in January, and we're at our furthest early in July.

What does precession have to do with it? You don't seem to know what it is.

Yes, every 112,000 years, the Earth's orbit precesses, it's called apsidal precession. This is where in its orbit the Earth is the furthest and closest to the Sun. Right now, the Earth is furthest from the Sun during northern summer, and closest during northern winter. It's opposite of course during southern summer and winter. In about 56,000 years, it will become the opposite.

Yes, it will be in roughly 13,00years or a little less.

The answer is no. The earth's position relative to the sun is a fixed position.
