The GL registry is at http://www.opengl.org/registry
You can access it if you look at the top of this page where it says Documentation.
There is also the specification page.

Q1. No, it won't damage your system. What are you worried about?
Q2. I'm not sure what you mean.
Q3. Yes.

What extension are you talking about?

Depends on the quality of documents. A good document should be articulate and address basic issues that a first time user may face.

It includes restrictions and language capabilities and most importantly, well illustrated.

you should get familiar with extensions in general: http://www.opengl.org/wiki/OpenGL_extensions
