Hi, friend
It is impossible to upgrade Android.

Will there be an upgrade to Android Nougat or at least Marshmallow?

I *highly* doubt it.  These inexpensive dual-boot devices are usually "what you get is what you get" devices.  Usually, no upgrades are provided by the manufacturer- ever.  Hell, you're lucky to get any real support for the devices at all from the manufacturer.  :-)  if it weren't for forums like this, these devices would never live up to their potential.

Now as to why those choose Android 5.1, I have no idea.  Maybe it was the most popular version when they designed the devices?

That all being said, Android 5.x is fine...   Also, from what I've seen, RemixOS actually appears to run faster than stock Android (they are both based on 5.1).  Since I can now run Nova launcher on RemixOS, I get all of the advantages of RemixOS (windowing, performance, etc) while also retaining the ability to use widgets and third-party launchers (there is a trick to get 3rd party launchers/widgets working with RemixOS).  It's the perfect combination for these devices!  While I haven't yet switched to RemixOS on my Chuwi Hi12, I have it on my Onda Obook 11 Plus and it runs *fantastically* on that device with Nova launcher.  I will be converting my Hi12 to RemixOS very soon - assuming my replacement keyboard works better than the one I have now....

it all depends upon intel. they have officially stopped support for atom cpu's. the last android version they had ported to atom cpu was android 5.1 and thats what you get.

What about the development community?  I've seen things like CM12 are available for the Hi12 (I think it was CM12 anyway) - is it possible that the development community will get Android 6.x running on these Intel devices at some point?  

These dual-boot devices are fantastic - I would sure hate to see them die a slow death because Intel stopped supporting Android...  Are there any other newer, actively supported processors that can run both Android and Windows?

dont know whether intel is developing for newer celerons and pentiums. it is the reason the newer chuwi lapbook 14.1 and HI13 tablet are windows only. they are not dual boot as they dont have newer android version for them. but i hear qualcomm is developing a cpu architecture with microsoft , which will support windows. so if intel does not resume android support we may see qualcomm (snapdragon based) cpu in future in dual boot tablets. how they will perform on windows cannot be guessed now.

I sure hope something happens as it would really suck to lose access to these dual-boot devices - especially so soon after I discovered them!  :-)  I always hated having to tote around 2 devices (one for WIndows because I'm on-call for work and I need Windows for my HPTuners application and one for Android simply because I much prefer Android for my day-to-day stuff (web browsing, email, internet forums, etc)...
