I have some hot cherry pepper seeds from Pepper Joe's that I intend to start now. If we get a freeze during the minimal fall we have here in Texas, and I need to bring them inside for a few hours, would they survive under an LED grow light? Would that change of light source shock or harm them? I am just thinking ahead and want to be prepared.

Thanks again, Sir!

A few hours won't make a difference but a few days will. Also in the fall/winter daylight hours are shorter and the sun is lower which means that sun loving heat loving plants will struggle. It takes about 90 days from transplanting to harvest so if you plant now you should be OK. If the plants are in 50 degree weather for very long they will stop growing. Keep above about 60F. On your lights use something like a T5 which is what I use for my seedlings when I have room.

At this time of year should I start these inside or get them outside as soon as they sprout?
It doesn't matter where you start the seeds but get them into dappled sunlight ASAP after germinating. After a few days of hardening off gradually move them into direct sun.
