Searching Internet for pseudo-future with the reference to English grammar did not yield any meaningful result. Is pseudo-future a term referring to subjunctive mood or future-in-the-past?

You are probably referring to the future tense in English, or, more accurately, the lack of a future tense. This deficiency leads to implying tense through the use of auxillary verbs such as
- will (and won't and shall): I will be home tomorrow.
- going to: I am going to sing after dinner.
- forms of be: You are singing after me.
Also,the simple present may be used, for example: - I sing after dinner.
It's easy to see how more than one method might be used to convey the same meaning about a future occurence.
So, without having a true future tense, one might refer to these alternative steps as the pseudo-future.
As mentioned in other comments, this is not a common expression, but its reasonable to assume this is its meaning.
