rubbed. is it only really ok as a short term solution - i.e. to get you home?

Not a big deal - some do it all the time. Problem Solvers among others makes a shim/grommet for this
purpose - ask your LBS.

It's fine even for the forseeable future. Nothing bad happens. Really.

There are also inner tubes made to fit a Schrader rim hole that work with a Presta pump: Dunlop
Continental makes them. If you already have a Schrader drilled rim and want to use Presta inner
tuber, grommets are a good idea, but not required.
