No, it needs to be added during the boil. IMHO, there is no reason to use a fining agent in a hefeweizen. RDWHAHB.

You'll be fine. You could always secondary it to clear it up a tad. But i like hefe's and the like a bit hazy. It suits the style. So keep it in primary for a month and bottle!

You actually should have purposely left it out. Good job! Hefe's are supposed to be cloudy, otherwise it becomes a Crystal Weisse.

kind of similar: i forgot to add my whirfloc until about 2-3 mins left in the boil instead of 15... will this harm anything? or just not have the same clarifying effect?
Im pretty sure 2-3 mins in boiling water is more than time for it to dissolve completely.
