Of course you can, it's really easy on Android, depending on what type of phone you have you can flash custom OC'd kernel's, or just use software.

This may be true, but that's not to say that modifying voltage absolutely will do permanent damage. With a bit of research it's actually quite hard to do so.

Most modern hardware have pretty good safety measures to ensure you can't do any damage. Killing a modern CPU or GPU nowadays is pretty hard.
