Note that the original poster (OP) understands that setting host mode is
a two step process, and in his question indicates that both steps have
in fact been taken.
Note too that the OP understands that this is not the intended use, but
rather may occur by accident.

I haven't found a clear answer on this one:
i got A-A Female to Female usb connector to couple two cables.
The wiki pages ,  provide sufficient info on usage, except of one
thing: if i switch into USB Host mode providing power (*) can i damage
anything if i forget it like that and replug my fr into my computer?
