Am I forced to control sims that aren’t my main character, or can I expect them to get by mostly fine without intervention?
Are DLCs basically a forced buy to get a decent experience? I’ve 590 in my account and this game is gonna set me back 479, and I’m not likely to be able to get DLCs for a long while. 10.0.0.0.1192.168.1.254 I see some mods that change up gameplay a little bit, even mechanically. Are there any that completely change how the game works?
I know that controlling your humans is half the game, but on the off chance that I want to treat this like DreamHouse Days, is there any way to have the people go about their regular lives and I just do the house stuff? Would be good for the kids who want to design but don’t want to deal with actually micromanaging some/everyone under the roof.

1). No, you control only the active household, everyone else lives their own lives. The sims in your active household will also have free will (unless you turn it off), so you won’t have to control every step;
2). Honestly? You won’t get a decent gameplay experience no matter how many packs you’ll install. The Sims 4 is focused on the character and house customisation because it brings EA more money in exchange for less effort. If this is your area of interest, you will be able to load the game with custom content and do just fine. If it’s gameplay you’re after, you will have a better experience with the sims 2 or 3;
3). Well, no. We have a very limited ability to change how the game works. There are some mods that introduce a lot of features, though (like Road to Fame);
4). You can adjust the level of autonomy in the settings. There are also a lot of mods that improve it in different ways (make things more interesting)
my advice is to play the base game at first to see if you even like it, then try to look into the things that you don’t like (how to improve them with mods) or feel like they are missing

I agree with a lot of what Mauvemorn says on this list.
Try the free version, get the base game and see if you like it at all. There are some mods that make some of the management easier in my opinion like Deaderpool's MCCC and Kawaii Stacey's Slice of Life and Roburky's Meaningful Stories (once set up they provide a lot of flavor text to liven up the gameplay). You can automate pretty much all of the game without mods in settings and neighborhood stories and you can tick off/on some of the stuff that's annoying. After that you pretty much have to manage babies/toddlers after they turn into children it's a bit more automated. If you add pets then you have to manage them. There's really not a whole lot that is added through DLC that isn't buggy (but the modding community is very good at fixing that)
If you're looking for a building thing, this can fill in pretty well, it has it's annoying nuances... just like any other game. However that's where the DLC comes in. If you want more variety DLC and CC is the way to get it, but you'll need to look for CC that is base game compatible or download the DLC. Some folks use the DLC meshes to make more things. You wouldn't really need to manage anyone in build mode, just use the commands and build away.
Really the modding community is what makes this game fun.
