Is there any possibility that heavy programs or games can harm hardware in the long run ?

Software can never hurt a computer except maybe virus's. if they
can say bounce the head of the hard drive (made of glass).

Only way heavy use of pc in game can hurt the pc, is if you have CPU
overheating issues, which is not caused by the software, the software
just shows up the problem causing the cpu to overheat. You can fix
that by adding a radiator (as in mine) or even go to extreme
liquid cooling systems.

Just check your cpu temp in BIOS. System will crash if CPU
temp exceeds 60 C. Mine used to but i fitted a radiator n now
it's fine.

Even 60C is perfectly fine for your CPU and graphics card... Once you get up to 80 or 90 I would begin to get worried, as that can lower the lifespan of your hardware in some cases (artifacts may occur). Also, consistently hot temperatures inside the case can lower hard drive life and increase failure. But like I said, this is only at extremely high temps. Just keep an eye on things if you aren't sure. Generally, computers won't get that hot, and are likely to shut down if they do.

Yeh when I was having temp issues, I was continually checking it with
a piece of software that came with the computer from Gigabyte. Tuner,
I think it was called. More about overclocking & monitoring more than
tuning.

It might shorten processor's life if the temp stays high for long
