If memory serves, in Adventure, when the harmonious ones (4 holy beasts, I believe) spoke through her, they said she was the only one of the group they could speak through; hence why they didn't clue the kids in before the Dark Masters arc. So, almost definitely an innate ability. Her power of light was also depicted as more of an ability rather than an emotional quality like the other crests (thinking of the Numemon in particular), so I always assumed they were related somehow.

It wasn't named in the original anime, but it was a thing. The name Homeostasis was first used in the Adventure novelization, which filled in more of the background that the anime skipped over. A different Homeostasis later appeared in the Xros Wars manga, which was also before Tri came out.

Hikari's more intimate connection with the Digital World and Digimon is more a result of Mamoru Hosoda's influence, not Kakudou's, I believe (Hosoda directed the first Digimon Adventure movie and Hikari's first episode in the series). It's never really explained outside of vague allusions to some kind of "light".

Being undefined and therefore unlimited, Hikari's "special" status allows future writers completely free reign with attaching her to supernatural elements or the more preternatural things included under the "digital world" umbrella.

In my personal fanfic/ideas, Hikari is carrying a catalyst for evolution called "the Light" (received by transmission when she intercepted the digi-egg in the first movie), which makes her such a big target for so many obscure forces, but that hardly counts for canon.

If they were going to back adapt stuff from other continuities I wish that instead of shoving Yggdrasil into the Adventure continuity they just stated that Hikari is the vessel for the Adventure continuity’s Digi Entelechy like Tamer’s Culumon.
