Or will I get into trouble?

Not a problem.
It might cause issues for Steam Cloud enabled games though. If the saved game you get is older than the one you saved in Cloud, Steam will just download yours again and overwrite the one you have locally. If it's more recent, it'll be uploaded to your Cloud, likely overwriting yours.

So make back-ups and/or play offline to be safe.

Achievements aren't stored in savegames like that. Not usually.

And even then that's not an offense that can get you banned.

Valve doesn't give a f*** about that sort of thing. As long as you're not cheating in a multiplayer game then you can do whatever the f*** you want.

the notion of achievement cheating actually being considered a serious "offense" is like one of the most peasant-like concepts of peasantry i can think of.
