The direction of the pool circulation: within the pool; water should circulate in a counter clockwise direction.

Starting at the skimmer, water travels from the skimmer to the pump (the pump is what makes everything work like the heater etc, from the pump to the filter, thru the heater, thru a chlorinator if you have one , back to the pool.

Can not using chemicals hurt a pool?

In general terms, a swimming pool needs to have disinfectant (usually chlorine or bromine) present in the water and a pH between 7.0 and 8.0 to be safe for swimmers. If no disinfectant is present, organisms may grow that are dangerous to people or harmful to the pool. Even if a pool is not in use, if there is water in the pool, a residual amount of disinfectant, proper pH, circulation of water through the filter and regular cleaning is necessary to maintain the pool to prevent damage to the pool finish and mechanical equipment. If the water sits without circulation or is not treated properly, algae may form and metal parts in the pool pump or heater may be damaged.

It may depend on where you are doing the cutting. I had a problem with circulation in a spa so I cut a hole into the wal between it and the main pool fortunately there was no reinforcement in the area I cut through. however if yoy had to cut through metal rio you would have to take extreme care that the exposed rio is protected from the water as rio expands when it rusts which wil result in cracking your pool. Rust in concrete can spell the end of it.

Can a pool's circulation be adequate with only one return jet?

Like most things in life, "it depends"! Yes, one return jet can be sufficient for an above ground pool or a smaller in-ground pool, maybe up to 15,000 gallons or so. But most large in-ground pools have multiple return lines to reduce the size of the returns and improve the circulation. If your pool has moveable return fittings that let you direct the return stream, it is most common to point them down towards the bottom to improve bottom to top circulation (since the skimmer takes water from the top, its best if you return water towards the bottom).

How do you get rid of white swim bugs in your pool?

These are almost certainly mosquito larvae. There are "wigglers" and "twirlers", but they are just two different species of mosquitoes.

Proper chlorination will also help.
