heard of guys considering it, dont think anyones done it. one mentioned using one of the side CDR ports on the intake as a possible way of getting it in there. need a way for it to open on WOT or close to it so its not wasted.

propane

Yes...you will definitely blow it up with to much.propane will ignite sooner,that is,before the injection event that sends diesel into the cylinder.It really has the same effect as advancing timing.To much advance equals broken parts.
In my opinion,don't bother on a N/A diesel.Not enough air to burn it efectively without a turbo.Probably a-lot more trouble than it's worth,and definitely risky,especially on a 6.2 with 21.5 to one compression.
If you try it,tell us how it goes(forewards,or apart ;) )

I think it would be ok if you watch how you use it. I watched a show on tv where they souped up a dodge. It sounded like you dont need much propane to add power. If you could have a smaller bottle, like for a lantern or a plumbers torch that would be ok instead of having the big tank mounted in the bed like most systems. Only use it when you need it, like when you back in a ditch or trying to get the big trailer to move. The propane systems I seen are for a constant use, for the 6.2 I think it would be fine for a little boost in power to get moving but don't go overbored.
