Is anybody else facing extremely long wait times before TWRP boots up completely? Even my Galaxy S3 can load TWRP faster than my 3T can. Somebody please help me out here.

If u want a faster TWRP boot, format data to ext4..I had the same issue..after changing the data partition TWRP loads faster...and there is no significant change in performance..

Yes, take a titanium backup of apps and data first

Oh ok. Thank you

Another question: will changing the format cause ROM incompatibilities or such?

Ext4 is compatible with most of the roms and kernels

No, quite the opposite since ext4 is the default filesystem on pretty much all Android devices, while Samsungs f2fs is not supported by every kernel/ROM as it has its disadvantages.

Isn't TWRP's slow loading due to decryption?

No, it's because of a bug/side-effect of f2fs that's making it excruciatingly slow to boot twrp. However encryption does make it a little slower to boot twrp even with ext4 filesystem, just not as much.
