Adding Another User's iCloud Account to Your iPhone - Questions and Concerns

Hello.

I am interested just to see if this works.

If I :

*Remove my current iCloud account and add a new one
*Go to messages and choose both my number and the other users number, to have their messages sent to my iPhone ( I have a 5s, the other user has a 4)

What will this do exactly?
Of course, they will receive notification that their iCloud account has been added to a device but will it say just the name of the device it was added too or does it also show the phone number of the device it was added too?
Will the other user be able to see any of my existing texts, and any incoming texts I may receive while their iCloud account is linked to my cell?
If I were to choose the "Find my iPhone" app while their iCloud account is linked to my iPhone, will it stay that way on their end, on their cell, once I remove their iCloud account?

I am aware this only shows iMessages, not text messages, however, when I tried this previously, nothing showed up other than my current messages.

Thank you in advance.

You can't just choose another user's number. You can only choose the number on your phone, or a number already associated to your icloud account, which can only be done on that iphone.. If you have that person's username and password, then you can do it, and after they get the notifications, you would be able to send/receive imessages via that account/phone.

If you activate Find My iPhone under their account, then remove it, it would stay listed as inactive for 7-14 days (i forget) then drop off.
