So, I own 2x 8GB HyperX Fury DDR4 2400mhz CL15 Rams. I'm planning to get probably a Ryzen 5600G/5600x with an msi B550m mortar combo; but I just learned Ryzen processors are sensitive to RAM speeds. Most people would suggest getting a 3200mhz/3600mhz, but I watched several people from youtube overlocked their 2400mhz ram to speeds like 3200mhz and some close to it. Should I do it too or just buy new rams? I mainly play single player games btw @1080p 60 fps.

You might be able to overclock the memory to 32/3600 by increasing the voltage and timings and might not.
It's worth a try since you already have the memory.

If it doesn't work then buy new memory.

Would it be safe and sustainable If ever the OC works? Would it cause problems to the motherboard or something in the long run?
