He can't just go out and conquer because for every move he makes, New Genesis makes a counter-move. If he were to invade a planet, the Highfather would immediately stand to its defense. New Genesis has military and other capabilities equal to Apokolips, and any all-out war between the two would result in mutual annihilation. This is why they agreed to this eternal cold war.
While Darkseid does go around the universe at times, making his schemes about superheroes and other beings, he is still careful not to draw New Genesis into a war no side can win, until he gains some leverage against them. This leverage is generally the anti-life equation.
Of course they do. We're talking about mutually assured destruction here. Would you risk it over some red cape wearing moron? All those times when Darkseid supposedly invaded Earth were just little skirmishes. If Apokolips really invaded Earth, Earth wouldn't still be here.
Also, Highfather, not sky father. :P
