Yes, some can work in other panels. But you go to an electrical supplier and get the one

that is the brand of the panel. If it is old and you can't find it, then try a GE breaker.

What type panel does a 4 pole breaker require?

The panel and breaker have to be of the same manufacturer. This way the breaker will fit into the panel. If the panel has a push in bus bar, the breaker must also be the type to accept the bus bar. If the bus bars in the panel are of the bolt in type then the breaker also has to be a bolt in breaker.

Will it hurt to use a 40 amp breaker on a water heater the wire I was sold will not fit into the 30 amp on a sq. D circuit breaker?

In the United States, if the wire is #8 copper or larger (smaller number) it will work fine on a 40 amp breaker. If the wire is #10 copper, there is something wrong with the breaker if it does not fit. Pull the breaker out of the panel and look into where the wire terminates to see why the #10 wire won't fit.

What would happen if a 200 amp breaker is used in a 100 amp sub panel?

There are two things to think about here. First of all a 200 amp breaker will not physically fit into a 100 amp panel. This is so designed because the panel buss is not designed to conduct 200 amps before the current is cut off. A 100 amp rating on the panel is the maximum amount of current that the manufacturer states, that can be handled safely. Second if the 200 amp breaker is in the main panel then everything downstream from that breaker has to be rated for 200 amp conductivity. The wire size will have to be 3/0 from the breaker to the first over current device in the sub panel which will be the sub panel's main breaker. The sub panel can not be a load center but will have to be a combination panel. I doubt that the 100 amp sub panel's main breaker lugs would be large enough to connect the 3/0 cable.
