Why is it advised to override doGet()&/doPost() instead directly overriding service()?
Is it only because the possibility of having implementations for for other doXyz() methods is not possible?

You can override other doXXX methods as well. Most of the time you can accomplish what you want the
to do using the doGet and doPost methods.

By Overriding service() method, you need to implement logic to read the type of HTTP request (GET/POST). But, currently the service method already does this and dispatches the request to doPost()/doGet() method appropriately.
I agree. Here's the link:
