Jimmy, it will work just fine.

Now, Is it ideal for trap shooting? Are you going to shoot occasionally or start shooting a lot (for score or fun)? For you or a child? Is the barrel threaded for choke tubes? Does it fit the person shooting it? Have you patterned it? Typically what I'm finding out with the athletes starting on the team. When we pattern a 20g the full choke is the way to go. 

Otherwise, if your looking for a reason to purchase another gun. A 12g would be better. Little more payload. So, NO. it will not work! Lol..

A big thing that effect felt recoil is stock design. Those old single shots had a huge amount of drop at the comb compared to todays shotguns and that makes a huge difference in felt recoil.

Kick a fair amount he says Big Smile .... Some of those things kick like a mule! A lot of people put their kids in a single shot as a first shot gun. I was one of those, probably why it took me so long to pick one up again after that. That thing, an old Stevens single 12 beat the holy hell out of me at 12 years old to the point where I questioned whether I really wanted to take the animal or not.

Yes, weight of the gun, type of shell, and to some extent action or individual gun.

Those lightweight single shots are known to kick a fair amount.

Depends on the weight of the guns in question, the loads fired through them, the action and a myriad of other things. Suppose that they are the same guns with the same loads the 28" would theoretically have less felt recoil due to the extra weight but that weight can be negligible as well. Bottom line is it depends. The gun that fits you best will kick the least.

My 20ga semi auto (28") has virtually no felt recoil due to the design of the ejection system. My wife shoots a 20ga pump youth model with a 22" barrel and because it fits her well, she says she doesn't notice the recoil at all.
