No that won't work on the ECO button. No harm done, the effect is minimal anyway.
On the throttle, I agree. Any effect seems minimal. But, it does cut down the AC. That I notice. I wonder if it does the same on the heat?

If your car has electric heating, yes. I tend to control the AC by its own button which is set to off as default.

While we're on the subject of heat... Is there a way to "force" either electric heat or ICE heat?

Which would more efficient... For a short trip, say 2 miles?

For a long trip?

On my model and the short time I have owned it , the weather has been quite mild, it has always stayed in electric, the other day we need to defrost the windscreen ( the 2020 no longer has a heated windscreen), it was about 4 degree at 22 c the car stayed in electric, when we turned the heating up to 26 c plus the ICE fire up. I was under impression in it fires up earlier in normal mode ?
