It sounds like you just need to mark these transactions as cleared? If so, you can select them in your register, right-click the selection, and choose to mark the transactions as cleared. It may make sense to click on the top of the reconciliation column in your register (the capital C) to sort your register by the transactions' cleared status. This should group the transactions you want to select in order so you can select them all at once as a group. You can then click on the Date heading when you are done to resort your register by date.
Let me know if I'm not understanding what you are describing.
The effect of it will be for any of these transactions not to show up as un-reconciled in the future, in other words they will be included into the opening balance as far as the reconciliation process is concerned.

Yes, clearing or unclearing transactions will not affect account balances. The reconciliation process is a way to evaluate accounts to see if anything is out of sorts, but it doesn't actually change the accounts. If any discrepancies are found, you would have to change those manually.
As dwg mentioned above, it will affect your Beginning Balance in the reconciliation process, which is a calculated value:
Beginning Balance = Initial Balance of the Account + Cleared Deposits - Cleared Payments
So adding or removing cleared transactions will affect that part of the reconciliation process. But I think that's what you want in this situation, if those transactions should be cleared but are not.
