Why is the feedback knob in Delay limited to 95 %?

If the feedback can be set to 100 % or above, it will mean the repetitions will continuously amplify in volume and can be hazardous to equipment/ears. However some delay based plugins may have higher limits, but one should be careful while trying it out.

Are reverb and delay important for mixing and mastering?

Yes they are, as they help simulate the space for your musical layers. This very much affects the mix.

My project playback was getting stuck when I started playing with reverb settings. Why’s this happening?

Reverb is relative more CPU intensive. Depending on your system config and how intensive your reverb settings are, it may affect Live’s playback. Switch the Global Quality setting in reverb to ECO. Besides, there are several tactics to optimise CPU usage in your Live set.
