Ok the recommended box size for a fi Q 15 is 2 cu ft. sealed. Mine is around 1.8. Will the box being undersized really matter?

The normal amount is 1 lb of dacron stuffing per cu ft of box.

So you would need 1.8 lbs of stuffing, which will be a tight fit.

Well I dont wanna use the wrong stuff and have it somehow ruin the speaker. This is very unlikely I know, just throwin it out there. Do u just let the stuff fly around?

If you're really concerned with the .2 CuFt, you could invert the subwoofer to eliminate any displacement the woofer will take up.
