i suppose it would depend on the gauge of your strings, the more tension the moer the neck is going to bend more stress on the bridge etc etc, thinner strings will snap earlier but thicker strings will put too much tension

yeah, get a set of 8's for a 6 string guitar, use that for 1-6. then use whatever gauge string for your 7th string

I don't think there'd be any damage if you only tune a half-step or whole step up. They wouldnt make the standard tuning one half-step lower, from the strings breaking, if you know what I mean.

If i get any neck bending wouldn't a truss rod agjustment fix that?

if you did what i said, there wouldn't be problems (except maybe intonation)

no, a set of 8's as in gauge, not number of strings

There are some multi FX units that support "emulation" of alternate tunings with very good results. I know Zoom G series support this feature.
