I accidentally drove at high speed in the "S" gear for an hour and a half coming to LA from SD. When I realised I was in the wrong gear, I immediately changed gears. Will there be irreversible damage

If there is no obvious damage now I doubt there is a problem. As long as you were not past redline the engine should be just fine.
