Ive also used cable ties in my tanks, what I do with the sharp ends is simply put marine glue on it so its smooth!

I've had problems with prefilter tubes clogging and building up gunk/bacteria to the point where the flow is just dribbling. That was in less than a month. Rinsing doesn't seem to work.

I would get a container or so and test it. You know? So you can be safe.

I had a problem when I stick foam inside the intake pipe but haven't had a problem with the foam on the outside yet.

Lol. I had that problem too with my Aquatech filter. It got sucked up the tube.

As OFL said, the rubber bands will just sort of deteriorate.... they don't really "snap" when they finally fail. They just sort of break & fall off (or just stay loosely wrapped around the pantyhose), so they wouldn't be a hazard to your fish. You'd probably just need to replace the rubberbands about once a month, so you probably wouldn't have any fail on you if you swap them regularly.
