I think there are too many variables to give a guess, probably the main being how well your house is sealed everywhere. I think the easiest thing to do is just use a very small amount of the product and see how well/fast it permeates throughout the house. If you get nothing at use more in increments.

unlikely, since ball-point pen will also have dented the surface so the pen mark is lower that the rest of the wood stain.
