At what age do most Catholics receive Confirmation?

The age at which you receive confirmation in the Catholic Church depends upon two things: your Rite, and your diocese.First, the Rite, there are approximately 18 Eastern Rites in the Catholic Church. Every Eastern Rite (to the best of my knowledge) baptizes, confirms, and gives First Holy Communion to infants within a week or so of birth.The Latin Rites: of which there are perhaps half a dozen, the Roman Rite (the largest, of which you probably think of when you think "Catholic") which includes the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms, and the Anglican Use, plus the Mozarabic, Ambrosian, Bragan, Dominican, Carmelite, and Carthusian. The last three are Rites of Religious Orders, so I would assume that everybody entering him was already confirmed. The rest of the Latin Rites confirm anywhere from 7 years of age up until maybe 16, depending on the local Ordinary (Bishop in most cases).

What are the Last Rites called now in the Catholic Church?

The "Last Rites" has never been a term used by the Catholic Church. It was common shorthand expression used by the Laity (and some priests) to refer to any or all of the following: Confession, Extreme Unction (now called Anointing of the Sick), Holy Communion (Viaticum or Communion for the dying), and the Apostolic Blessing. Those three sacraments - Penance, Anointing, and Communion have all been called "Last Rites" or the whole of them together, plus the Apostolic Blessing. The fact that it is rarely used anymore by the laity does not mean that it used to be a Catholic term.

Does the rites of the Easter Vigil transform the Elect into Neophytes?

No. The RCIA. like the Catholic faith, is a journey. Terms such as Elect and Neophyte are titles the church uses to mark the stages of that journey. The rites of the Easter Vigil (baptism, confirmation, and holy communion are three of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church. It is the Holy Sprit working through the sacraments that transforms. In Catholic theology this transformation occurs through an ongoing process rather than at a single point. After the first year, neophytes become members of the faithful and encouraged to fully participate in lay ministry, give to the parish as able, and participate in the life of their local parish as part of the "priesthood of believers."
