I really suspect that your string jobs, being deviated by 5 lbs difference on the crosses, is warping your frame.
No it's not. Have tried it myself. No problem.

Now, depending on the main, cross, and pattern, you could get a crappy string bed. It all depends.

But stringing stiff/shorter poly crosses lower than soft/longer gut mains is a good thing.

if your problem is "too much power", then don't look to the strings, look to the tension
It depends on the frame. In a small head simply upping the tension to reduce power can rapidly lead to a dead feeling string-bed, especially in a gut/poly hybrid. It can also increase the friction between the mains and crosses which defeats the purpose of a gut/poly hybrid. Much better to get a stiffer cross and keep the tension AND friction as low as possible.
