As for the first sentence, the last part could be:
何とかそれを「」解決しようという力を...
人が成長する「きっかけ」になることも多いという。
The latter part:
It is said the stress leads you manage to solve the problem
and this will often trigger to mature you.

Yes. 手段を選ばない is a common idiom
"to do anything (even if it's dirty or risky etc)".
And it's used usually in a negative way.
