I have a 2013 subaru impreza premium and I'm wanting to put 18 inch rims on it with low profile tires. Is this possible, and if so, will it be bad for the transmission or would it be bad in any way?

Is the impreza AWD? If so, do NOT go out side the manufacturer recommended wheels/tires. A car is designed to operate with OEM parts. You go making changes like that and you are in for drive axle, brake, wheel hub, and bearing issues, in addition to suspension problems. Get some nice looking OEM stock Impreza wheels and enjoy the car.

what If I went to a size 16, would that be bad?

Its 15" stock right? 16's should be fine just know that the tire dealer or dealership will tell you that voids the warranty on the related parts. 16"s are too bad. Just wanting to save you money and hassle down the road, best of luck

Yeah, they are size 15" stock. Is there any possibility of 16" damaging anything? Looks like I might have to settle on 15"s?

Really appreciate the info!!!!!
