Q: What does "cheating rumor" mean?
A: A rumor is a bit of talk or knowledge that people will talk about, like in schools, or the workplace, without actually knowing if it’s true or not. There could be a rumor that Lisa is dating Max, and people would tell their friends and peers about how those two are dating, but they don’t know if it’s actually true. Cheating is, literally, when you don’t do something how it is supposed to be done, and you accomplish your goal anyways. In this context, cheating is when one person in a romantic or intimate relationship starts a new relationship (romantic or intimate) with another person. For example: there is a rumor going around School that Lisa and Max are dating. I asked Max, and he said yes, he is dating Lisa. It is not a rumor for me, but for other people, if they do not know the truth, it is still a rumor. Max starts to ALSO date Alex. He is now dating these two people, Lisa and Alex. Because he was dating Lisa first, he is cheating on Lisa. People hear about this, and tell their friends. Now there is a cheating rumor about Max. Even though it is correct, people don’t know if Max is ACTUALLY cheating, so it is still a rumor. In short: cheating rumor= a claim going around the general community of a place about if someone is cheating on their partner, but the people don’t know it it’s true or not.

Q: He got caught cheating with a young girl in his room. When his wife swung open the door, she found they are making out. does this sound natural?
A: It depends on what context this paragraph is in. If this is part of a narrative, or fiction, a more natural way to phrase it would be: "He was caught cheating with a young girl in his room. When his wife swung open the door, she found them making out." However, if this is just a description of something that happened, I would phrase it more like: "He got caught cheating with a young girl. When his wife opened the door, she found them making out." Hope that helps! :)
Q: He is cheating too much. 彼はうわきをしまくっている does this sound natural?
A: We would not use this phrase in English. The reason we would not is because cheating (where I'm from) is an act that, if done once, is considered a huge problem. When you say "He is eating too much" what it means is that eating a little bit is okay, but too much is unhealthy. If you say "He is cheating too much", it means that cheating a little bit is okay, but cheating a lot is not okay, which is not how we think in the west. If he is going wild, on a rampage, having sex with girls, I would say "He is on a cheating rampage" or "He is cheating like there's no tomorrow".
