Went to an Invisalign consult the other day for an overbite/overjet problem and was told that my case couldn't be treated because my teeth are already "locked in," referring to the way my teeth are lined up like gears and can't be moved. I was also told I actually don't have an overbite/overjet; another consult told me differently and I wanted y'all's opinion

You do have an overjet, but to try and change that when the rest of your teeth bite together so well would be questionable. You certainly won't do it with Invisalign. You could end up spending a whole lot of money for an unstable result that will need retainers for the rest of your life.

Alright, about how long do you think this case could be treated with braces?

Not my level of expertise. It may be that they could advise against it. You'd have to get orthodontic opinions, likely success rates, pros and cons, and costs.
