Turning the heater on will cool the engine temp!

true, it will assist in cooling the motor.

Yes. Because the heater is a heat exchanger giving up heat to the air being blown across it. But if you have to do that there is a big problem with your cooling system.

The heater will cool a engine only if it is one that turns the water of at a tap. Some have constant water though the heater core so would not make a huge difference.
