Would clogging or covering my Subwoofer bass tube ( the tube which fires air outside the subwoofer box ) permenantly damage the subwoofer over time ?
iam asking cuz my subwoofer is rumbling and clogging the tube makes that rumble far less audible

It could cause back pressure and damage the woofer. You could try using a cotton towel to "loosely" fill the port, and experiment with different levels of filling the port. But a total clogging of the port I would not recommend.
I will try partial clogging so the tube can still fire some air out

Is it chuffing(air) or clipping(power)? Look up those two definitions and see which applies to you. It can also be the sub placement in the room that causes you to overpower the driver and start clipping.

I personally wouldn't plug/cover the vent.
