The mind swap deal is in keeping with the original comic story, and them using mutant abilities to pull off the feat is more in keeping with them than having access to a time machine that anyone can use.
Why Wolverine and not Magneto or Xavier? (both also exist in 1973). For plot purposes maybe his healing factor is the only thing that allows him to survive the process. For non plot purposes, Wolverine's the star (again...)
Why not just send Bishop? We don't know yet, but I'm sure they'll have some explanation for that.
