You can change the port as required. Only thing is in clustered environment, you must use the updated port whereever required. I.e Enabling search head clustering , or deploying bundle from search head deployer.

You can use any port if you want. If your environment is clustering, this option is not available or you can deploy a exclusive machine for this.

There will be no consequences for your forwarder. You can change it using the CLI: splunk set splunkd-port 9089
