Hi, I was looking forward to setting my site up with ckeditor and supposed emoji but the two features are very poorly implemented (mostly because they're outdated)

Firstly, ckeditor is just notoriously bloated, even in it's slimmed-down versions; the twemoji-awesome package is discontinued, so really at some point, something better is going to be needed. I've been using a ckeditor plugin that has a better icon selector, with the categories that anyone who uses emoji will have come to recognise but it too, needs work.
I don't see why you don't have alternatives, for example: summernote (go check it out) as an editor and as far as Emoji go, there's really only one option: EmojiOne, someone's even created a package for it to implement a picker
