did i ruin my beer? is it going to taste bad?

Ruined is probably a stretch, but based on the fermentations I've done with bread yeast, I wouldn't get your hopes up as far as flavor. Another potential concern would be contamination, since standards for microbial levels in baker's yeast are relatively high. I'd give it at least a full month in the fermenter, assuming you're bottling. Having a bacterial fermentation kick off in the bottles would be a Bad Thing.

i will kegging this brew. any more advice for me?

after a few home brews, i thought it would be a great time start a new brew. i am a beginner to the home brew hobby. every thing was going great until it was time to add the pellet hops in. heres what i did, in the last few min of my boil i was to add in my hops so i grabbed the package, cut the top off and dumped it in. just as it all poured into the boiling wort i noticed the i had the wrong package. i had dumped in the yeast.
>:( . i did end up putting the hops in and finished the boil. i chilled it in a ice bath trying to figure out if there is some way to fix my brew.

i figured that i killed the yeast in the boil and at 3am there was no way to get any brewers yeast. but i did find some bakers yeast in the cubard. i used it and is formenting for the past 2 days.

did i ruin my beer? is it going to taste bad?
