With the MCD under construction and opening soon, will old commuter lines be cancelled?
i.e. Will the MCD replace some current services? Will the non-MCD services be changed to so they handle the non-MCD need better once all the MCD lines are open?
The MCD in Moscow is like what the Overground is to London.

Most of the London Overground lines used to be some of the most run-down lines in the city.

The North/West London, GOBLIN and Watford DC lines used to be run by Silverlink, which was notorious for old trains and awful frequencies.

The East London line used to be run by the A60/A62 stock trains that first came into service in 1961.

How often do the trains run of these new diameter lines? Are the tracks shared with out-of-city trains?

None of the line is completed. Currently it's commuter trains operating in metro mode within MCD limits. Eventually MCD trains will run own tracks and rolling stock, so will turn real metro lines. Minimum interval is planned 5 minutes in the beginning with further reduction in future
