Is there any bad effects that can come from moving the fermenter 2 days into pitching? I really need to for temp. reasons.

Shouldn't be in bad effects. Remove airlock to prevent suck back and don't splash it too much.

I've moved mine many times...for temp reasons also.
I go slow and make sure I don't splash and I haven't ran into any problems.

No problem unless you drop it.

Other than dropping it, no.
