EB would not be so much "manipulation" as it would be "conditioning" or "enhancing charge."

what effect does cultivating it have...

all the body's energetic systems flow forth...the deeper it is, the longer your reserves last, and more potent amplitudes able to be generated...

or were you looking for something a little more specific? 8)
Even in mildly complex systems, any outcome is the wrong thing to target, with the process being where the focus should be.

I don't feel very comfortable moving the chi to a part of my body and back to dan tien because in dr.yangs white crane he said you can lead qi and it can get stuck .which is bad news.however I am guessing that as long as I move it out dan tien and then back to dan tien its ok?

yi directs qi all the time. no need to be afraid, just understand the process. until you really feel potentials, then you wont feel much, but the intent of returning qi to dantien is sufficient to begin with...and also it will help cultivating deep stillness.

I played with my buddy's Flukemeter before, set it to ohms, and could push around the resistance values. Even make it go to 0 - but it would not stay long before the body's energy snapped back to a more normal configuration.

injuries from "stuck qi" only really have the potential to happen if you ignore the fundamentals of stillness and properly closing down energy work - and do enough cultivation to gain significant charge in the dantien (few people accomplish this anyway)...but you really have to practice improperly enough to obtain some juice and not be mindful and do things improperly for it to injure you.
