Every heard of these two simple words “free will” ? Even God respected a person’s free will to say either “yes” or” no.” It is as simple as that.

I think you're missing the point. Questions of "free will" aside, a "no" from Mary would not have prevented the incarnation. God is much, much bigger than that. He is a God that can make stones cry out in praise of Him should humans refuse to do so.

Yes! He has to have it out of free will. Otherwise he is a dictator and not God. She loved God. If not everything is a farce. God would not be the God of Love and Justice.
He knew her heart thats for sure. As scripture tells us He knows our thoughts.
Otherwise this would be Forced instead of Love.
John 3:16 King James Version (KJV)
16For God so Loved?/Forced the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
