Could this support kipping pull-ups? I'm a 125lb female so I would think if it could support 300lbs then it could handle my bodyweight swinging on it

Yes, BUT I won't recommend it. I have the tendency to do kipping too after a few dead-hang pullup and get tired. But I remind myself NOT to do kipping since the bar is not permanently bolted to the frame or anything like that. There is a good chance that it shifts and comes off during as the body swing and may injure you or break something (the bar, the door frame, the door, or anything close by)

It could definitely hold up to 300lbs but I would be hesitant doing a Kipping pull up. The swinging motion might cause it to dislodge it from the frame. A bit of swinging is fine. I do pull ups with leg lifts and it supports me just fine.

Most likely. I am 210lbs and live in an apartment complex that was built before 1960 and there has been no damage to the door frame.

I think so. I weigh 155. It supports me fine. Only 1 small problem: it'll make minor dents in your door molding. Nobody'll notice except you

It can easily support your weight and kipping pull ups, the only problem I see is your elbows hitting the door frame as you swing if you have a wide grip
