It seems that I have just spent the past 18 hours of playtime setting myself up for a pimp a** team, while completely forgetting to take Mega Evolutions into account. Have I wasted three fourths of a day? Or does it not really matter?

If your team has good synergy, you don't need a mega.

Depends on your team. If your team can counter their mega, you are golden. However, everyone or at least 95% of the battlers will have a mega. If you do not have a mega to counter it, or viable members who can withstand the likes of mega blaze chicken, mega spookghost, or the banned yet people still use mega badmom takes her child into battle then you are doomed

Using something that can go Mega but not doing it can be a great mindgame, simply because EVERYBODY uses one. Though, it will not work quite as well if the Mega is considered inferior to the original (Alakazam, Heracross, etc.).

I think i should be able to scrape by against Blazekin and Gengar. Any recommendations for a counter for Kangaskhan?

In game? You can win no problem without a mega.

Competitively? You can still win no problem. Megas are almost all good, but they aren't so good that you need one to compete.

Heracross's Mega is more equal than inferior. They have different roles to play. Depends on your team.

No matter how lost in the woods you are, you can always be found.

There's a good reason it was recently banned by the smogon metagame, it has pretty much no reliable counters. The only pokemon that seems to have some degree of success is Sableye.
