The only issue I see with this is the aggression level of damsels. Yes some people think fish in cycles are the end of the world but they really arent. With consistent water changes you will be fine. And since your ammonia had already converted into nitrites before adding the fish your tank is fairly close to being completely cycled. I don't necessarily think fish in cycles are a great idea, but they are not going to ruin your tank or anything.

Just do consistent water changes and you will be fine. As soon as those nitrites turn to nitrate and you get those levels down you look good to go.

Ye it's not going to do anything long term, if you can catch the damsel. Ammonia and nitrite burn fishes lungs......... I wouldn't want to do that to a living breathing thinking animal.
