i bound my Q, W, E, R, D, and F to smart cast by default. it saves time, but since you don't see the blue "range circles/lines" before casting it can be a little disorienting when using it on a champ you haven't played before since you won't have the ranges memorized.

Say you pressed Q,W,E,R in sequence over a target would it save the order in which you cast those spells and do it automatically?

Or is it just for the hover spell use effect (ie: Karthus)?

Smart cast is godly with some champions, Veiger, for instance.

Smart cast is really useful when you get hit with a CC. You can just spam the hell out of your keys. Making your skills fire as soon as you come out of the CC.

Another great example would be Vlad. When you use your pool. You can start spamming a smart cast life steal. The faster you can use your skills the better.

1. Bind all your skills to smartcast.
2. ???
3. Profit!

I never looked back. You get a feeling for the range of your skills very fast and it just flows that much better. It's similar to typing blind instead of looking at your keyboard.

This, while his cage is a BAD thing to smartcast [You generally want to land the edge of the cage on top of people, stunning them instantly. Much harder with smartcast]

However with smartcast you can cast your combo in about a second

Its the difference between "Oh that veigar hurt but i escaped" and "OMG HE MELTED ME TO DEATH SDKFJSL:FJS"

How do you bind a key to smartcast though? Is this under bindings in game?

Yes under key bindings in the options menu.

2 = Find and edit the Key configuration file to bind Shift+q,w,e,r back to their original targetting versions.

For reasons that are completely beyond my ken, the UI doesn't let you make these bindings, but the game doesn't have a problem with it if you do it with a text editor. Sometimes you really want the targetting, and shift is the perfect place to put them.
To make this happen:

C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\game\DATA\CFG\input.ini <- **BACKUP THIS FILE BEFORE YOU EDIT IT*
to look like this:
[GameEvents]
evtCastSpell1=[Shift][q]
evtCastSpell2=[Shift][w]
evtCastSpell3=[Shift][e]
evtCastSpell4=[Shift][r]
evtSmartCastSpell1=[q]
evtSmartCastSpell2=[w]
evtSmartCastSpell3=[e]
evtSmartCastSpell4=[r]
evtCastAvatarSpell1=[Shift][d]
evtCastAvatarSpell2=[Shift][f]
evtSmartCastAvatarSpell1=[d]
evtSmartCastAvatarSpell2=[f]

also, instead of rebinding your keys you can just hold shift when you click QWER
