If they really wanted to be smart about it integrate modern needs (web browser, Wifi, Camera ect) they could make a killing. I'd certainly pay good money for one.
IDK, but I think making the old PS2 chips on a newer process would be a very difficult task. There is a reason why the mini console emulate or use FPGAs.

Purpose designing a chip for such a niche market must be too expensive for the big console companies to consider properly.

As much as I'd love to see it happen, I think the closest that we will see is Sony doing a Microsoft and making the PS5 a great emulator for their previous platforms.
