Well my question is if you were to put a G2 geometry fork onto a frame not intended for G2 geometry be. Would it put too much stress on the head tube? Would steering be messed up? Input greatly appreciated.

I met a guy who bought a used G2 Float to put on his Spec Stumpjumper. Not sure how it rode but it was cheap because no one else wanted a G2 fork for a non GF bike. I know its not an answer to your question but it can be done and won't break your bike.

I have run a G2 F29 100mm fork on the following bikes:

GF Paragon
Ventana El Padrino
Santa Cruz Tallboy
KHS Flagstaff
Niner EMD

Have not had a problem with any of them.

G2 offset is 52 or 54mm............current non-G2 forks are are around 46mm offset. So it does not cause anymore stress on the frame.

Run it.
