TRS has decided on moving the term definition to Netorare and replace the genre with the Cuckold trope.

I don't get why is it considered so wrong. It's just like Real Life, where monogamy is widely considered oh so old-timey. Everybody does that.

It's not hated because it's "wrong"; it's hated because it plays into the most visceral gender stereotype imaginable: that when a man desires a woman, he's laid "claim" to her so that other men cannot have her. Men who allow their woman to be "taken" by another man are viewed as weak and lesser—undeserving of being called men.

Notice that very few complain when The Hero seduces the bad guy's girlfriend in a Go Seduce My Archnemesis plot, or when a Romantic False Lead loses out to the Protagonist. It's because people see them as the "victor", and thus, the better man.

Is it still consider Netorare Genre if its overlapped with Pay Unto Evil? (example: Stealing the wife of a husband who's been constantly cheating on the said wife)

Odd that this trope is described from the heroine's POV. Many NTR are portrayed from her significant other's POV. That may be part of the reason it's detested by many, because the audience is encouraged to view things through his eyes, witnessing his beloved taken from him and often gladly letting herself be taken. Also, while this is seen frequently in American media, it's often a past occurrance that turned the villain into the nutjob he is. Is there a trope equivalent for Netori, which is the same story told from the taker's POV?

I propose making this trope more genre neutral so that Cuckquean and Cuckquean Fetish can be redirected here. While the genre is primarily geared towards women that cheat with other men, there are stories which focus on the inverse.

"In PITCH, Light has sex with L and, after tying him up and gagging him, forces Aiber to watch. It's different in that L and Light are already together, and Light is trying to make Aiber realize that L is not available. "

If L and Light are already together, then how does it count for this trope? Isn't the point of it that the person is having sex with someone who isn't their love interest?

Yeah, it's not really this trope.
