Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Warning"

The meaning of "Warning" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa They say that if these warning labels were to be introduced, parents could become so accustomed to seeing them 'that' they would eventually stop taking notice and revert to their old habits.

Q. why is 'that' used? Please explain it grammatically?
A: So... that

“So” is placed before a modifier (adjective or adverb) to intensify its quality or manner. This emphasis on the modifier expresses a remarkable situation. It is used with “that” + a clause to express an effect (result) of the remarkable situation mentioned in the main clause.

For example:

- This show is so funny that I can’t stop laughing

- The water is so clear that I can see my reflection in it

- Your story was so sad that it made me cry
Q: O que significa You don't want to do it like that
This is just a warning, you don't want to get on the wrong side of him, rookie.

Does "you don't want to" mean "I suggest you should not do" or "You better not do"??
A: 'you don't want to' means 'you better not'. It would not be 'suggest' as that's polite and this person is stating the other person doesn't want to without asking them beforehand, kind of like demanding they don't want to, which is rude. 'You better not' is also rude so they mean more the same.
Q: O que significa What does “health warning labels” mean??
A health warning label is an obligatory sign on a product. For example, cigarettes come with a cancer and heart disease warning. I’ve included a snapshot of an image search.
Q: O que significa A warning in '09 for over limit of lines. ?
A: I need more information (context) to be sure but if I had to guess I would say ‘09 is short for 2009 and that “over limit of lines” has something to do with too many “fishing lines”.

So maybe it is about Fish & Game warning people in 2009 about using too many fishing lines at the same time.

If you think about it, this makes sense. If a person went fishing alone and used 10 fishing lines at the same time they could catch too many fish which is bad for the fish population and unfair for other fishermen.

EDIT: I found this in a government document.

“Late at night a fisherman was observed with an over limit of lines in the water. The fisherman stated that some of the lines were his and the others belonged to his friend that just went inside the cottage to go to the bathroom.”

So I think my answer is correct. There are rules for not having too many fishing lines at the same time.
Q: O que significa They let him off with a warning?
A: They released him with punishing him.
