Is it legal?

Since it has already been stated that the skill is out of scope, practicing the skill will make me break laws and even company rules. So, it is not legal

Since it is already out of scope, practicing the skill is not going to prove beneficial for anyone. Only there might be irreversible serious damages that may happen so no it is not balanced.

How will it make me feel about myself?

If I go ahead and practice this skill I will feel that I’m breaking the law and being untruthful to myself. So I will decide that I should not do activities that are against the law and those which are wrong even when I possess the skill needed for practicing.
