A proof of principle experiment is one designed to see if the idea is workable. Usually little if any data is collected. Example: " I wonder what happens if I push this button?" Better example: " Can energy be generated by wind?" To do a proof of principle experiment, it would only be necessary to generate "some" energy from "some" wind by "some" method. It would not be necessary to collect data or decide the practicality of a particular method.

You have to calculate the amount of error that can be expected in your experiment, and if the results exceed the experimental error, they can be considered to be meaningful. We would really have to discuss a specific experiment to see how this principle works.

It is impossible to even speculate. There is no admitted proof that UFOs do exist and no hard information on propulsion.

Basically, an experiment leads either to the proof that a theory is correct, or the theory is wrong. Experimentation could sometimes lead to a happy accident, such as penicillin, to name only one.

Albert Einstein's Photo-electric effect is one of the proof of the particle nature of light. The experiment on the wave particle duality is another proof pf the particle nature of light.

As with any scientific experiment, you would have to observe it happening many timers, and know thsat you could repeat it.
