No, all will run fine, and if a game isn't compatible, it won't damage your PC, you just need to run it in compatibility mode. (Right click icon, properties, compatibility)

No, it goes as far as win 95. In many cases this still doesnt work tho, but even if the game doesnt run or has problems, it will not damage your system. There are very little things that can.
