time cures all sins.
Whatever has become of this with the large amount of fermentables it's going to need a while to mellow out.
Once you decide if there is anything, or exactly what you want to do regarding hops and water I'd rack it to another carboy and forget it for a few months.
taste it in like 3 months or so, just to check on it.

I would say let ride on the current yeast until it bumps up against that alcohol tolerance, which I suspect it will do. Then, get a big starter ready of WLP099, super high gravity yeast. Pitch the big starter at high krausen and you should be able to dry it out some.

I like the idea of pitching WLP099 to dry it out. I'd taste a sample at that point and check your gravity readings.
It may be what some people call "sweet" but you may like it just fine.
Either way I have a feeling this beer will be amazing after a year.
