1. Will leaving my Laptop plugged in all the time do any damage?
2. Will leaving my Laptop on overnight to run a Program that needs lots of RAM (i.e. FPS game) or high CPU usage (i.e. Video Converter) do any damage?

the answer is no ,as long as its well ventilated,on a cooling pad or hard surface so air can flow underneath the laptop ,,not laying on you bed or chesterfield ,
my wife once downloaded a very large file , left the laptop running for 4 weeks .that was last year ,laptop still runs like new

My answers are my opinion only,usually

When leaving your laptop plugged in all the time will slowly decrease the battery life. It is highly recomended that if you must do so to powercycle your battery once a month let it go completely dead, Then charge it. This will help maintain your battery's life. however it will still slowly go dead after awhile. As for leaving your laptop on to download files over night. No just make sure it's in a nice cool place with a fan under it. Ty
