And times infinity is fine! For example, five times infinity is infinity. Nothing wrong there.

We’ll say the Gabriel’s horn part is the size of the hollow interior.

y is constant, since Gabriel's Horn is 1/x from cut off at 1 and rotated around the x-axis. So the opening has a radius of 1, but I still can't help with the harmonics. At least not off the top of my head, and I'm too lazy to try to do work to find it.

I'm not entirely sure that I have. Assume an incompressible fluid, conservation of volume, the speed at any finite distance along the neck of the horn is finite. Although much larger than the speed of light.

It depends on your profession. For physicists, the answer is "yes", because a sound wave is produced.
For audiophiles, the answer is "no", because sound is what you get when the eardrum vibrates.

To a physicist, not quite. The sound waves propagate outwards like an inverse square function since the cross-sectional area logarithmically increases. It would limit to zero since:
I (is-proportional-to) 1/d^2 so as distance -> infinity, then I (which, lets say represents decibels) would then limit to zero.
