I think the feelings were genuine, we can tell because Sam gets through to her with the "you felt it too" comment at the end...

Why was Zoe surprised to learn about Sam? If the Evil Leaper Project was created as a reaction to PQL, then Zoe should have known Sam was there. She did seem genuinely surprised.
Zoe may have known of Sam's theories, but that doesn't mean she would necessarily know that he was leaping around in time too.

If Alia and Sam could see each other, why couldn't they see each others' holograms. When Zoe is trying to get Alia to shoot Sam, Sam says "don't listen to her" as if he could hear Zoe.
Sam and Alia touching was enough to break through the auras surrounding them so they could see each other, but each hologram is only tuned into each leaper's brainwaves. There would need to be a brainwave connection (not just breaking through an aura) to be able to see the other hologram.

And before you ask, in Revenge of the Evil Leaper, Alia can see Thames because Zoe is linked to both Alia's and Thames' brainwaves.

I don't understand what you mean here. Sam did leap in to directly counter Alia - if the leap "never happened" how could he have countered Alia?

Again, we don't have any confirmation that Zoe was actually involved in the creation of their project, only that she ended up being the hologram (although she was originally going to be the leaper but suggested Alia as a favour).

Even though I think Connie was teaching Jimmy to read even before Alia's arrival, I think Alia was taking it to another level on purpose, so that all the attention she is placing on Jimmy would Frank would feel neglected...
