Not if you do it right. (If you're talking about evilpotatman's MJ5 flash, don't do the rooting step. Root with Kingo, so you can unroot if you need warranty work.)

Nope, so long as you stop there and don't continue on to root and flash other mods via odin as Rubikat has alluded to. If your rooted already with a tripped Knox counter then your in a grey area (in the EU at least) warranty wise. Assume if your Knox flag is tripped you have voided your warranty, but it isn't that clear, just assume it and don't be surprised if Samsung refuse a warranty repair if and when they notice.

Even in the rare case of flashing stock firmware using Odin causing problem (very rare it can happen, but I've never personally been aware of it happening, Odin from my experience is safer than Kies) your warranty will not be affected. Odin is what Samsung themselves use.

Your English is fine

You can't downgrade. Only flash firmwares of the same version for your model.

For instance you can flash 4.2 to 4.3 but not back to 4.2 and neither can you flash 4.4.2 and go back to 4.3 or 4.2.

Yes it is the same version of Jelly Bean - 4.3 you can downgrade. It is slightly older but that won't make a difference it is still 4.3
