    What is the best, hopefully safe way to overclock my Lenovo 2010's CPU?

    Have you rooted your device?

    Install ROM toolbox and go to CPU tweaks. Drag the sliders to the maximum. If that is already done ignore because the device manufacturers have set your to maximum frequency.
    Tip: I don't believe in keeping the minimum slider to maximum as it might hear the phone and use more battery.

    Does overclocking have to be done over a period or can it be done immediately in seconds?

    I would worry about overheating issues. It's not like a desktop computer where you can just bolt on a bigger cooling fan.

    Would it be enough to cause system UI crash every once in a while?

    Well yeah, overclocking will be making your phone's CPU run at a faster clock speed than usual, increasing the chance for instability. It also will result in more heat. Components inside any smartphone are packed very tightly together with little open spaces for air ventilation (with the trend being waterproofing so essentially no ventilation). That leaves heat buildup a major problem, as even in just normal use without overclocking a phone can get warm.
    I'd recommend doing your overclocking in incremental steps over a few days and when it gets too warm or becomes unstable during day-to-day use crank it back a step or two.
