Is penance sufficient when one goes to confession and after being absolved of a particular sin, sins no more in regards to that particular sin?
If you go to confession with sincere repentance, and forget a past sin, it is still forgiven. It need not be confessed in a subsequent confession.
I don't understand the second question.
