Will changing the 3-prong plug from a dryer to a range for a high btu heater rated at 30-50A reduce possible output of a 30A appliance?

This is a really great question and makes perfect sense!!

I would like to know the answer as well.

It seems my dryer does not get as hot with the 4 prongs as it did with 3...

... What? This question makes very little sense. What are you trying to wire? Is it a heater, a range, or a dryer? What is it rated at? What wiring do you already have in place?

Sometimes changing a heater core can be a very big job. It is not changing the core that is hard, rather getting to it. Good luck.

No, that is perfectly fine as it is an electric heater, However if you had water near the electrical appliance, that would be dangerous.

Plumbers are generally the people who deal with water heater problems. If you bought the heater from a major appliance store, the store might have technicians available to service it, ofetn at no charge.

Yes, provided the heater has its own 30A overload protection. Otherwise, the appliance would fry well before the 50A breaker blew.

The current is proportionately high as heater requires current to heat the filament.The voltage is deliberately low to sustain the safe power consumption limits.

You need to call your local appliance repair shop and order / purchase the L.P oriface for this model heater that you have, I did this to all the ones that I have.
