i it safe to cook green beans until done and put in canning jars and seal?

nope its not safe. green beans are very low acid and spoil easily. You could end up wasting all that time and effort just to toss them when you open them and they are bad. Do it proper with a pressure canner or freeze them.

Nope. Got a good chance of poisoning whoever eats them. Botulism. Can't taste it or smell it, but it can kill you. Unless, of course, you immediately put the beans in the fridge and eat them within a few days, or freeze them, which isn't a good thing to do with glass jars, and they'll probably be like mush if you fully cook them before freezing.

No. They need to be pressure canned. Beans are not acidic enough to just can in a water bath, and you never just put things into a sterilized canning jar and then seal it, not even if it is an acidic food (berries, tomatoes, etc).

There are very specific procedures for home canning. One uses a pressure cooker and the other a water bath. Many counties have "home extension agents" or "canning centers" where proper equipment and safe practice can be explained or even provided. Check out your local resources, or go on YouTube to find the proper way to can bacteria free.
