It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Try running them in a VM/separate computer as it will overwrite your current blocks.
Most hf clients do try to use the same directory as bitcoin core due to the laziness of programmers of the hard fork.

Look on the specific hard fork websites, ie, bitcoingold.org, bitcoincash.org... These will also give you the information you need on the client that you can read if you wish.

Test it with bitcoin cash, that's the most valuable one. Ensure you move all bitcoins off the private key you import into the fork wallet just in case as also it'll require exposing your private key more than once.
