I understand that we use an NMOS to form a constant current source. My question is, can we create a constant current sink using a similar approach with PMOS? Is constant current sink even a thing?

The load impedance is 20Kohms (10K+10K to 7.5V)
and this may be too low for your bias current, with
that bare current source/sink mirror output.
Test this possibility by vcvs-buffering the output node
before the feedback is taken.

The given audio amplifiers ... (without any signal connections) will output VCC/2.
If your supply voltage is 5V then the output is 2.5V.
They are able to easily sink and source currents of 100mA.
I thought this is what you need.
This is a simple - one part - solution.
But you have an OPAMP with additional bias.

It depends on the loudspeaker and how much power you want. Some NE555 manufacturers specify as much as 200mA sink/source current which is enough to drive a medium to high impedance loudspeaker directly. The mass of the loudspeaker cone will be enough to average the PWM back to an analog level.

Another drawback is that unless you can find an opto-coupler with fast switching characteristics and high current source and sink capability, it will not be able to provide enough gate current to ensure rapid turn on and off of the MOSFETS. The relatively high gate capacitance of power MOSFETS means you need a large charging current to turn them o

If you add 0.6V to your input, then you get 1V output from the classic NPN emitter follower. It automatically subtracts .6V.
Notice the bias sinks as much as 160 uA. If this is not too much for your bias to sink or source, then it may also be all right if the supply goes as low as 1.1 V.

To know the inverter power (magnitude and direction), you'll multiply and voltage and current (instantaneous power) and average the product. Under circumstances, it's sufficient to form sign(P) = sign(V) xor sign (I), needs only two comparators.
