It wont be any faster. More ammonia in the beginning will just mean more bacteria at the end. If you can take the damsels back, then most deffinately yes!
For one, you are torturing them with that ammonia. If they survive, they will likely be quite disgruntled with you and any new fish to come.
Maybe this is how a damsel becomes a real demon fish? They are born trouble makers, and then become pissed when subjected to a cycle?
