comment Can Aereni Focus and Skill Focus be stacked?
Welcome to rpg.se! Please take a look at the tour, it's a useful introduction to the site. It is important that the Stack gets questions tagged appropriately so that experts can find it to answer, and so that others with the same question can get use from it. It's also important that we each do our best to be nice on the Stack even when others aren't.

specific tags trump general ones; if you're asking about 5e, that's the only system tag you need

comment Suggestions for structure around “investigation” scenes/stories?
@OverloadUT If you find a way to re-organise your thoughts in the question, please do so! And if you'd like some help with that, or just want to talk about Fate in a more free-form context, the RPG.SE chat room usually has several talkative Fate players in it who'd be happy to help.

comment Suggestions for structure around “investigation” scenes/stories?
This is great prep advice, but only the third-to-last paragraph seems to address the asker's question directly and I'm not really seeing how it shakes things up mechanically during play.

comment Suggestions for structure around “investigation” scenes/stories?
This answer would be improved by an explanation of why you're encouraging the asker to focus on increasing narrative drama instead of giving them advice about the increased mechanical complexity they're asking for.

comment How can characters defend with approaches other than quick?
Feels like this walks right up to the edge of a direct solution to the question, but doesn't quite stick the landing. You talk a lot about the attitudes you think are good to have, and then jump straight to examples, without the crucial middle bit about marrying attitude to action. The Stack wants answers which connect all the dots, without leaving anything as an exercise for the reader.

comment How should I deal with metagaming?
@SteveJessop Although they haven't been incorporated into the question, the asker's comments have mentioned such ultimatums. "Told them, that it's not fair to the others, that it's not fair to me and all that. Helped for like two sessions. And that's why I started to cut the XP, what helped for a year (like I posted). And like you wrote, I told them, that I won't write complex scenarios for them, when it won't stop. But I see, that's all I can do." (source)

comment How to explain to a new player that metagaming is encouraged in this group
The answers to this question may be tangentially helpful, as your question has a lot to do with group cohesion and unified goals: How to transform a bunch of strangers into a friendly group?
