If any one saith, that true and natural water is not of necessity for baptism, and, on that account, wrests, to some sort of metaphor, those words of our Lord Jesus Christ; Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost; let him be anathema.

Does Trent declare water is a necessity or does it only not mean it?
Council of Trent declares: "The Council further teaches that, though contrition may sometimes be made perfect by charity and may reconcile men to God before the actual reception of this sacrament, still the reconciliation is not to be ascribed to the contrition apart from the desire for the sacrament which it includes."

No disagreement from me here.

Dude, that second canon from Trent is a definition of Baptism of Desire, straight up.  There is no contradiction, if there was then every pre-Vatican II theologian listed in the OP link was a moron.  Which is ridiculous.  There is no conflict here.

Which second canon are you talking about?
