Unless you're directing a porn film I think you're worrying unnecessarily. Today's SIBs are fairly robust, however common sense should prevail in how you use and maintain it.
Regards pulling it over rocky ground or up a slip - then yes the abrasive nature is likely to damage the keel, especially the transom keel section. You can always fit transom wheels as a way round this, although they're plug ugly. Pulling it up a short stretch of sandy beach is fine - just don't haul the painter line. Get someone to help you and support it at the engine end. Stand in it on dry land? Go ahead, as long as you want!
When should we expect to see your directorial debut?
