question about the An-148. I noticed the seating arrangement is 3 & 2. the isle being offset to the port side. how does that effect CG. and how's it countered. literally with ballast? equipment shoved to one side?

It actually doesn't affect it much. Several of the regional aircraft have configurations like that. They can put ballast in place, or they can put equipment more to the side with the two seats, but it doesn't have a huge effect to begin with. Not as much as it would appear to have.
Yes. An uncontained engine failure could do significant damage to the wing, leading to flight control problems, and a situation where they go out of control and break up in flight. The results would look similar to a bomb being on board too.
