If the ball was touched inside the circle by an attacker, then it will probably count as a goal. However, if the ball was dangerous (lifted into/at a player within 5 metres) or became an advantage in favour of the defense before that, it should be called a free hit to the defense (either for danger or the first offense). If there is an advantage gained, the umpire may call a PC or stroke before or while the ball enters the goal.

No.. There is no semi-circle in 8 Ball. Therefore, no shot can be made from a semi-circle in the game.
