I've been told that running glue-ups through a planer or jointer is not
a good idea. The dried glue apparently has a damaging effect on the
knives. Any other ideas/opinions?

If you are talking about edge glued panels, that isn't the only reason
not to do it. Unless the grain is going in all the same direction,
which is very unlikely, tear out is all but guaranteed. Once the panel
is glued up, go to hand planes, scrapers and sanding. I use a ROS if
sanding is called for. Your glue-up should be close to flat and level
after it dries. If it isn't, then something else went wrong.
Depends on the glue. Most of the everyday glues you'd apply yourself are
OK, most of them used for commercial plywood are a bad idea. You can
cerrtainly do this, and you won't destroy anything instantly, but expect
accelerated wear on the knives.
Same thing applies to hand planes.
