If the ball landed behind home plate, it is already a foul ball, even if it rolls back into fair territory.

If the batter already has 2 strikes and then the ball is bunted foul, it's an out.

The above answer is wrong. If a batted ball lands behind home plate but rolls forward and settles on the plate or in front of the plate, it is a fair ball.

Ball is hit behind batter and spins to the front of batte fair or foul?

Not sure just exactly what your question is, but I think you're asking if a batted ball hits behind the batter and spins onto fair territory, is it fair or foul. Answer: provided it was not touched by any one or any thing, it would be a fair ball. Inside first and third base, a ball is determined to be fair or foul by where it comes to rest or where it is first touched.

Why is the pitchers mound not in the center of the baseball diamond?

This is because the rules of baseball say the mound is a distance from homeplate that is less than halfway the distance between homeplate and 2nd base. The distance is the same between each base in order (the same from home to 1st, 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to home.) This results in the distance between homeplate and 2nd equal to the distance between 1st and 3rd. If you draw a line between homeplate and 2nd, and a line between 1st and 3rd, the lines will intersect in the center of the baseball diamond. However, the center point will be behind the pitcher's mound. You can use the Pythagorean Theorem to prove the distance from the mound to home is less than the center point, but that is another question. (Hint: The distance squared from home to first plus the distance squared from first to second divided by 2).
