1. Will it hurt to take the bluing out of the inside of the barrel and cylinder chambers?
As was said, there is no bluing inside the chambers or barrel of any gun that has been fired.

2. Will the gun in this state rust very easily, would I have to be more care worthy with it?
Yes. Bluing is a protective oxide layer that helps protect against rust. You will now have raw exposed steel. You will need to keep the firearm well oiled.
