    Perhaps. Depends on what CPU it is, what all it'll be processing and for how long, other components in the case, and other factors. Far too few details for any answer except "perhaps".

    It depends on the actual clock speed it is made to work on. Obviously beyond that there will be a threshold that will start overheating the components and thus might cause any serious damage to hardware.

    Yes, this might be harmful. How did you ask this? Is there such a problem?

    There are always risks when pushing hardware and components past what they were designed to operate under. They may be some wiggle room but not knowing your starting point, it's hard to say. Like other have mentioned you may have an issue with over heating as well and this could cause issues for other components like your GPU. IF you are running in a desktop with extra case fans for cooling you may be fine but overclocking a laptop is something I personally would not do. They have enough issues with temperature already.
