I don't think they could or should integrate the X-Men at this point. At least without using Infinity War as a giant reset button.
No, what they should do is have only Deadpool be aware that both 'verses exist and confuse everyone else by talking about things that haven't happened in their 'verse.
If they do reset cosmically, Deadpool would still know. Him, and Layla Miller, are the only ones who could know.
But they still have hurdles to cover, two big ones:
1) The X-Men films have basically played out most of the big villains, leaving only a few noteworthy ones left.
2) The "Classic" X-Men are sort of played out, with more interest being shown in different mutants than the, say, the O5. Hell, Laura has about as much pull as her dad does.
Brand Faith might be revitalized by this, but audiences for the mighty mutants are a bit tapped.
But if they plot it out like the Avengers were -- doing solo movies/odd focus and seeing what worked before moving on with sequels -- they might make it work.
That said, there's a help and a hindrance already in place:
The Help: The Registration Act -- That political point has cropped up a lot X-Lore.
The Hinderance: Ultron -- Kind of hard to work Sentinels in once Sokovia showed the dangers of A.I. Though having it be the "Sentinel Drone Program" and be remote drones rather than robots might work out a bit, or go the cyborg/bio-sentinel rout . . .
It can work, but it will be a challenge. If there is a Phase 4 and 5 and beyond, they may not show up until 5 or 6.
That said, the big "Avengers" movie of that cycle might just be "Avengers vs. X-men" and wouldn't that be a kicker.
