I am not sure what circumstances you have in mind, but a lot of circuits have a voltage output so if you want an active load you cannot use a voltage load - the current would but infinite - only limited by spurious resistances. With a current load the power into the load will vary linearly with the output voltage. Another (...)

U must not worry about high active load current. Why do you use active load ? Because u can not implement a big resistor in value with a small passive resistor (poly silicon) in dimention in dimension. This is a trade of. U earn in resistor value with small dimension. But u loss in power consumption.

It depends on what type of a diode you mean.
In most cases (rectifier, Zener, etc.) a diode is, no doubt, a passive device. Only in some special cases like with a tunnel diode, when its negative resistance region is used, it can be considered as an ACTIVE device.
