So I know that the Imperials didn't think that a single X-wing could make it into the tunnels of the Death Star, let alone discharge a missile, but seriously, there were super close calls in the Clone Wars and miracles and stuff. Why didn't they take that into account?
And also, when the Death Star blew up, wouldn't anything nearby (ahem ahem DARTH VADER, or LUKE) get incinerated? If that thing is the size of a moon, then it should give off a lot of debris at a fast rate, correct?

For the first part of your question, I'm not sure how one can take literal miracles into account, as that would literally encompass any set of circumstances imagineable, and therefore would be impossible to compensate for. As far as the second half, the movie pretty clearly shows everyone hightailing away from the Death Star before it blows, presumably at a speed that will outpace any shockwave or debris.
