Momoshiki cared about immortality, which in a sense he currently has somewhat accomplished if he indeed transfer a part of himself into Boruto, just as Orochimaru has done in the past with his juinjutsu.
Why are people so stuck up on him being inside Boruto? There is an equally high chance that the guy simply is dead and just wanted to spit into Boruto´s face one last time from the grave. To me at least it comes off as a pure plot device for the sake of foreshadowing the future events that are to unfold in the series and nothing else.
Obito could controll his Chakra beyond death and he only received a Hagoromo like state. Minato & Kushina could manipulate chakra past their death after their souls had passed on to the pure land and they were just regular albeit Kage level Ninja.
Why should an arrogant divine being have the urge to copy his soul into the body of a human boy, a race he deems inferior for the sake of achieving immortality? Isn´t Kaguya Immortal? Last time I checked she was and the only requirement for her to achieve that goal was to eat the Chakra fruit. If this is the requirement shouldn´t Momoshiki be capeable of achieving immortality by fullfilling the same requirements? So why the whole Orochimaru copycat theory?
The only other character that came close to her level of immortality was Hidan and that guy is dead according to Pain. Maybe his immortality wears off after enough time passes. This wouldn´t surprise me and given Pain´s capabilities he could have released him if he still was available. Kishimoto left it ambigious, but I doubt the new author will bring Hidan of all people back into the story, given his minor influence on the story.
