Duct tape will just hide the fact that the cracks got bigger, so it will give you false confidence, then it will give out at the worst possible time, causing you to get hurt, meaning your new frame will go unridden for months.

Rent a cracker box and just stick weld it. Remove the paint off along the length of the crack, grind a v along its length as well, run a bead. Fixed

Stick welding is AWFUL on thin materials. It would likely blow through the materials and then be a HUGE pain to fill in the blown out holes.

Honestly a Tig Welder would be ideal, MIG (wire-feed) welder would work, hell, even a Torch and filler rod would help.

No, it really wouldn't work well at all.

This.

Better to see the crack as it grows, better to just not ride it at all, or at the very least only cruise on it

Take it to a local weld shop and see what it would cost to lay a bead on the cracks.
