Can i use a guitar practice amp as a sort of preamp to add distortion and other effects in front of a bass amp? will this damage either amp?

signal path will look like this in case i didnt explain it welll enough:

bass>line 6 mini amp>bass amp (with the output on the mini amp connected to the input on the bass amp)

Not from the output of the line 6. But if it has a "line out", and your bass amp has a effects loop you could run it that way.

To your idea. That output is made to drive a speaker, it'll destroy the other amp.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
#6
what if i run it through the stereo input for a cd player on the bass amp instead of into the main input? would that be better?

No, it still wouldn't work. The impedance won't match and will likely severely damage the one you're running into.
