simple questions about latency and using outboard effects

Hi - I'm fairly new to digital recording, I've moved over from working with reel to reel decks recently because of the smaller cost of maintenance.

Everything so far has been pretty intuitive, so hopefully I don't seem like a dumb ass for asking these questions.

If I say - run a track through an output on my converters to an outboard effect, and run it back into a line in and record the wet effect, does it delay the signal at all, or does the software auto-correct it somehow?

If I am overdubbing a guitar track, and say there are a lot of effects on the tracks that are going to the headphones which creates some delay, is the recorded guitar delayed as well, or is this corrected somehow?

Thanks in advance...

If someone knows of a good article or thread for me to check out that would be great as well.
