the older Spock as depicted in this film isn't from the Prime timeline

Illogical. Illogical. Does not compute.

Did Spock travel back in time within the same universe, or did he emerge in an entirely different universe? Seems clear he's now in an entirely nu universe, in which case, it would be highly immoral for him to try to change it into an exact copy of the old universe just to please a few trekkies.

Yes. It would be highly immoral to try and save six billion who didn't die before.
