What will happened / adverse effect if a lens without Quick Shift focus function, used Quick Shift Focus by force? for example FA 43mm f/1.9? I've my copy being tortured by my brother! omg!

In the worst case, the AF motor module of the camera would be trashed, but the lens will be just fine. If the camera still AF, nothing to worry.

Slap your brothers hand and then show him the current price tag of the lens (just kidding about the slap, not looking to start a family feud here).

The AF seem still working fine. Is there any effect to the autofocus?

None whatsoever if you mean accuracy. It either works or not.
