Since this is just an HTTP header than can be faked, is it possible for a visitor to include an X-Real-IP header value of their own, passing a fake IP to the back-end server? Does nginx always overwrite this value with the one it detects?

Yes, nginx always overwrites a header if you set it in proxy_set_header.
