The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 gained Royal Assent on 26 June 2018. It is an Act of Parliament already. Under the terms of that Act, as far as I am aware, the UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019. Parliament has three choices:
1 It could vote to rescind this act in which case the UK would stay in the EU. There is probably a majority in parliament who would like to do this but won't because of the consequences, i.e. their leave voting constituents would probably kick them out or possibly worse.
2 It could vote for the deal on offer. While it is not certain, all the comments being made suggest that there is no majority to support this.
3 It could vote to extend the Article 50 period, either to allow further negotiation on the deal or to hold a second referendum. I don't think renegotiation or holding a second referendum would be possible within the remaining timescale. An extension is only possible with the agreement of the EU. I would guess that if they thought that it might lead to the UK staying in the EU they would grant an extension but if they thought that it would be used to obtain a different deal that was more favourable to the UK and less favourable to the EU they would probably refuse the extension.
If parliament does not execute one of these choices, or something else that a majority can agree on, then the UK will leave the EU on 29 March without a deal. No majority in parliament is needed. Unless something is done to stop it, it will happen as surely as night follows day.

Once you have entered a Schengen area there are no passport controls until you leave a Schengen area country again. So travelling inter- Schengen there are no passport controls/immigration for any passengers at all e.g. Greece to Belgium or Greece to France, Spain etc.
Cyprus is not part of Schengen, as the UK is not, hence passport controls on entering/leaving those countries.
