What happens if you drop a ton of hydrogen bombs and missiles on a star?
One that's relatively small.

The same as if you drop a water bomb in the ocean. Hard to claim that the ocean gets wet because of that, isn't it?
Well, each second, in the Sun, occurs the explosion of 10.000 times more hydrogen bombs than the total stock of it on Earth.
If we were to drop all that we (all nuclear nations put together) have in the Sun, even at the scale of 1/100th of second, that would be negligible (1% more energy for 1/100th of second...)

Nothing at all. They would all be melted and vaporized long before they could get close to it.
Nuclear weapons, or any existing weapons, are totally useless in the vacuum of space.

Nothing noticeable. The sun is small as stars go. You could send every nuclear missile on earth into the sun and it would have less effect than a routine sun spot.

They get destroyed by immense heat.

You don't really grasp the scale of an object necessary to sustain nuclear fusion! All the fissionable material on Earth could not affect any star.

Nothing much except a solar flare. A star IS a sustained nuclear fusion bomb. If the star is a magntar. The solar flare probably will kill you.
