Default bad cpu + good mobo

if i insert a bad unworking cpu into a working mobo and then try to boot it up, will that damage my mobo? by bad cpu, i mean the pins and everything is intact, but it just wont work maybe b/c its fried.

if two of the pins on a cpu is bent, does that permanently screw that cpu? is there absolutely any way to fix it?
