Well, actually a factory reset is nothing more than deleting the user's data. Files which are stored in the system partition stay untouched. So your modification is still present even after "factory resetting".
Best thing you can do to totally reset it: Download the latest (4.4.2) factory image for "hammerhead" (=Nexus 5 codename) from Google and flash it. It contains all partitions and resets them to it's original state There are tutorials out there on how to flash a factory image

Okay, let me summarize what you did:
1) You messed around with system apps.
2) You don't have a Nandroid-Backup - so you choose to factory reset your phone <- Which actually doesn't revert your modifications since the "system" partition remains untouched.
3) You set up your phone again but the system wizard keeps crashing.
4) You installed Apex Launcher and it fixed this problem.
5) Google Search isn't available after the factory reset, so you download it from Play Store and make it a system app.
6) Now your system feels slower in general.
--> Is that correct?

If yes, what exactly do you want to have now? Reset your phone like it was on the first day?
And why did you touch system apps at all? What did you want to modify?

Greets,

I can only recommend to completely reset your phone by factory image. Trust me, it will remove all your problems!
