There might be other times, but the only one coming to mind is a character repeatedly being told that he didn't come to the house with his two friends, and that he's a member of a family he only knew for a day

This might be a bit of a stretch, but in the first episode, a sentient Fax Machine makes flirtatious comments towards Red Guy (such as telling him he has a "lovely telephone voice") and forces him to sit down against his will. While it never goes further, it can still be interpreted as workplace sexual harassment.

No, but the guest characters are typically sentient objects (briefcase, lamp, etc.), and traditional haunting/horror imagery is used throughout the show including blood oozing across a floor to turn into a character (episode 2), and an old choppy home video playing on an old TV set (episode 3).

Episode 3 in particular plays like a haunted house story.

as the other person said, yellow guy cuts off his own finger. this is technically self harm, but in context it wasn't self harm like for the reasons most people do it.
his "dead" friend duck had no blood inside his finger which someone else cut off, proving duck was dead (rules of physics/science dont apply here).
yellow guy was simply checking if he was dead too

Typically at least one per episode. Particularly of note, in episode 4 yellow guy is so upset that he fully retreats into his brain.

The show is very existential, in the last episode yellow guy becomes self aware about the nature of his universe and has an existential crisis.

It's sort of complicated since no one's age is really known. Yellow guy can be interpreted as a child (but it's unclear since he doesn't grow taller when he ages up) and he's forced to be the "mother" of a family, complete with the father of the family calling him "Darling"
