Basically,below two automated monitoring tools required.

The solution you are looking for is for an Enterprise/SMB?
I am sure there might be better monitoring applications available for the Citrix environment.

The tests you have mentioned might be possible using API.
I would suggest looking into Python and Citrix API to develop something with your exact requirement. Citrix Developer Docs

I am struggling to think of anything off-hand that does this. I *think* eGinnovations might have this kind of feature but it's more for load testing.

You could try the scripts here: https://www.czerno.com/blog/post/2016/08/26/powershell-script-to-launch-one-or-more-published-applications-from-citrix-storefront-2-x-through-3-6 but they are somewhat out of date now. However it may be possible they'll still work or may need some retweeking. I haven't dissected them so I couldn't say either way, I am afraid.

Edit: Well I was a bit daft there - if I'd looked a bit harder at his site, he's actually got a much more up-to-date version of the script: https://www.czerno.com/blog/post/2020/09/26/powershell-script-to-launch-one-or-more-published-applications-from-citrix-storefront-1912
