Fork travel question, maybe stupid

Hi , if I run 140 mm forks with my preferred firm feel I get a max travel of around 110mm . Would this be ok on a bike designed for 120mm forks? I understand it will slacken the head angle and Bb will raise a little but would it cause undue stress on the head tube ? Probably a really stupid question but had to ask .
But it seems a bit pointless to have travel and not use it. Sounds more like you need to adjust compression damping.

Most forks can be properly reduced in travel to take that 20mm off the axle to crown length.

Sorry it's a RL . It says about locking fork but would I be able to adjust compression this was or is on/off so to speak ? Thanks for help folks it's much appreciated
