Usually the gasket will survive, but replacing is the best option to ensure no leaks.

I have not seen it done, however does not mean it cannot be done.... its a very tight fit, so the safety wire would have be very neat and tight to the flywheel, possibly bonded to the flywheel with adhesive of some-sort... otherwise the same thing would happen as if the bolts came out; contact with alternator windings=distruction
