Synonyms of "Insult" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between I ended up hurling insult at him unintentionally. and I winded up hurling insult at him unconsciously. ?
A: First off, 'I ended up unintentionally hurling insults at him' and 'I wound up hurling insults at him without thinking' sound more natural ^^ Now, to answer your question, they have somewhat similar connotations, but 'end up', to me, suggests that you really didn't expect to start insulting him. Maybe you wanted to have a calm, peaceful interaction but you ended up getting very upset. Think, 'in the end, this is what happened' :) 'Wound up' to me sounds more like a random occurrence, an accident, if you will.
Q: What is the difference between I can't stand such an insult.
and B: I can't stomach such an insult. ?
A: The second one seems more intense. They have the same meaning though.

"offend" is like "insult", but offend can be used more generally. When someone is insulted, it's personal.

Q: I'd like to know what "no insult" and "none taken" in the text.
A: Ana is saying that she thinks it’s boring. But she doesn’t want to be rude and says “no insult,” meaning that she’s not insulting him, she’s simply voicing her thoughts. Gregory says “none taken,” meaning he didn’t take it as an insult.

“No insult,” can also be used as “no offense,” but both of them can sound kind of sarcastic, be careful with this expression!
Q: I will not give in to the insult which he said. Does this sound natural?
A: Your sentence is not natural for two reasons:
①You don't normally 'give in' to an insult. You 'give in' to demands, etc. You either respond or don't respond to insults or you let them affect you or not.
②Your sentence is somewhat stiff. As insults are normally verbal, you do not need to say 'which he said'. If you want to be specific that it was spoken you can say 'verbal insult(s)'.

I won't let myself be affected by his insult.
I won't let his insult affect me.
I won't lower myself by responding to his insult.
I won't respond to his insult.
