That sounds like fun

Also: Where did the x!y thing come from? I keep seeing it.

x!y is basically a way of differentiating different canons and fanons of a character. For instance, say you have a popular of a fanfic of a show, you put 'fanfic name'!'character name' to signify that this is that particular fanfic's interpretation of the character that you're talking about.

Not specifically fanfic name and not even an interpretation. Any permutation of a character or object can be identified this way, whenever just using an adjective might be confusing. I think it originated in some programming language or other.

I've mainly been seeing it as Fem!X, with X being the character. I have a friend that loves Hetalia, so I see a lot of her RP buddies having that.

Where I'm from it's used more generally, such as for example 2011!Armok for referring to what I were like, did, etc. a year ago.
