Hi the device called the starter motor has completed it’s function to start the engine. it runs at a low speed. so it needs to disconnect. the engine would stall if it was not removed. so the mechanism is so designed to do just that disconnect. however this mechanism does need some maintenance after sometime as it gets dirt and old sticky grease in it’s working parts. so most get washed off in a solvent as gasoline is the most readily available that is often used. it needs to dry off before a thin oil is applied to lubricate the surfaces.
so answers are A yes it will damage the starter motor, yes it could take excessive power, more likely to drain the battery, slow the engine down yes and finally stall it.
so all but one of those is true.
It’s A nothing relate to transmission LOL
A mostly but all of the above.
