We zijn naar huis nu aan het lopen. This is considered WRONG. I think it should also be accepted.

No the word order is wrong. The general word order is time - manner - place. There is some flexibility for purposes of emphasis, though you cannot place nu where you did. If you wanted to place nu somewhere else it would go to the front of the sentence. Though arguably it sounds best when you simply put time before place.
