It's a simplified explanation of the story but yes, Hank McCoy brought the original 5 X-Men to the future because he thinks that Scott Summers is going to bring about the mutant genocide. Oh and because Hank McCoy has been an absolute dick to Scott for the past several years. The man actually called him to basically say "I told you so!" before.
2. Are the time-displaced X-Men still in the present, even though they've met their older counterparts and despite the fact that some of the smartest people in the Marvel Universe either know, or should know, that there is a blatant risk to the space-time continuum to them being there?
The time-displaced X-Men are still in the present because aside from Angel they don't want to go back to the past yet. Also, the smartest people in the Marvel Universe just learned that going to the X-Men and asking them to do anything that they don't want to do is a bad idea. See Avengers vs. X-Men.
3. Explain, in 25 words or less, how All-New X-Men's premise isn't "cheap as fuck.":
We don't know when
the original X-Men will go back home or if
they will go back in the same condition they left.
4. Explain, in 25 words or less, how 12 issues and counting of All-New X-Men with those time-displaced X-Men in the present "couldn't be over with by now."
It's an ongoing series. They could change history and we won't know until the long-term story is over.
