http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1347 describes what the "Add to library" should do. It certainly shouldn't move or damage your music files. All it does it adding an entry about it to its own internal library.
If it did otherwise in your case, something is wrong. That shouldn't have happened. It's a mystery. All you can do: complain with Apple. And recover as well as you can.
Making a backup is always necessary. There's no special need for Apple to warn you about it, especially not if their software isn't supposed to change anything to your files.
Sorry to read you didn't.
