Yes, you can get into trouble as the information you are trying to obtain is proprietary. What you are trying to do is called Reverse Engineering.
As acejavelin mentioned, some of the information can be found on the internet. Most chip manufacturers have information on their website you can view on all the chips they make.
But, to try to create a schematic is very difficult at best. I was a Electronics Lab Tech for 6 years and assisted in some reverse engineering projects.
Even IF you were able to create some sort of schematic you would need specialized test equipment to determine which component failed if the failure was hardware related.
