Information on down tuning

Ok, basialy if I get this right, any instruments would be able to "take" Down tuning with the right tenssion.

Following this guide:

if I currently have, lets say, an RG350 (Floating bridge, 25.5 scale), go from standard tuning using an EXL110 (10-46 stings) , change them for a kit of EXL156 and tune it in Baritone (B tuning, 3 step down) it should take it "just as well".

Surely, I'd have to adjust the spring tension, intonation, would I have to adjust the truss rod also?

Anyone can tell me if that would cause any issue on the long term?

Should work just fine, probably won't need a truss rod adjustment, but if your not comfortable with setting it up just bring it to a good tech to take care of and you should be good to go.
