Using a heavier line wont damage your reel! PROVIDING that you set the drag to allow it to cope with the extra strain, should you catch a big fish on the heavier line.
Using lighter line isn't a problem, the only problem you might have is you need more line due to its low diameter.
If your just starting out casting don't overfill the spool(leave about 2-3mm from the rim of the spool) and use a heavier line, about 10lb test as its larger diameter gives you more control.
Also your correct that the 6lb/x means the amount of line that the reel can hold on average in yds(some lines differ in diameter even in the same breaking strain)
