If you have a different prescription for your eyes, you should be able to tell based on whether your vision is blurry or not. It won't cause damage to your eye if you accidentally put in the wrong contact, but wearing the wrong prescription for an extended period of time could damage your sight in the long run. If your vision is ok with your contacts in, you should have nothing to worry about.

You will feel uncomfortable. Just like you say, you have two different prescription, whether right or left is heavier, the other side will certainly feel uncomfortable. Let's say, if your left eye is -1.00, but you put -2.00 diopters, your will feel dizzy, on the contrary, you can not see things clearly. And this will also have damage to your eyes. If you can not distinguish which one is right, you can go the glasses store, and the salesman will help you.

You would have contact lenses in the wrong eyes.

Now seriously. I'm guessing you mean what happens if you accidentally put them in the wrong eyes. There would be no damage or pain (providing they have been disinfected correctly and that you don't always wear them the wrong way round) - they are made of the same material and are not chemically made specifically to each eye! Only the optical strength is different.
That's like asking what would happen if you did this with your shoes. You'd just feel weird and walk funny.

You would know by the fact that your eyesight doesn't seem quite right, compared to when you have put them in correct way.
