I feel very stupid asking this but I don't care because Einstien (or someone) said that there is no such thing as a stupid question, and he was no idiot savont, right?

Do mismatching lights (as in- cheap halogen lights not designed for filming) show up dramaticly on b&w film?

Well, black and white film is more sensitive to daylight than to the tungsten spectrum- hence the two ISO numbers listed for the one stock. So when metering, be aware of this. But you are not going to get a gross mismatch, the speeds are less than half a stop apart, so in terms of mixing color temps, you'll be fine.
